MONEY: Bank warns interest rates to rise by ‘as much as needed’ to rein in inflation

The warning came amid panic in the markets over Friday’s mini-budget, which sparked a sharp fall in the value of the pound, which touched a record low a little above $1.03 against the US dollar in early trading today.
