WHISTLEBLOWER in a landmark tax-evasion case against UBS has won an eye-watering $104m (£64.7m) reward from the US authorities.

Bradley Birkenfeld was freed from prison last month after a court found that he withheld some information, but remains under home confinement in the States.

The former UBS banker been awarded a cut of the $780m that the bank paid three years ago to settle charges that it helped American clients hide $20bn.
