Shell posted one of the biggest profits in history for a British company, revealing today that it made $31.4 billion (£22 billion) in 2008, up by 14 per cent on 2007.
The record profits — equivalent to £60 million a day — came as the oil giant admitted that it was being hit by the plunging crude oil price and weakening demand for oil and gas.
