Google was charged £36.4m in UK corporation tax last year, according to its latest annual results.

The US search giant recorded sales of £1.03bn and a pre-tax profit of £149m in the UK for the 12 months to the end of June 2016.

Google and other major tech firms have come under pressure over their tax arrangements.

The firm paid about £25m in UK tax last year, but said it expected to make a further payment of about £12m.
