Barclays has reported a rise in profits after making "strong progress" in restructuring.

The bank reported a profit before tax of £3.2bn for 2016, up from £1.1bn the year before.

Its reorganisation has included the sale of its Africa business.

Barclays has also been selling off other parts of the business which the bank deems "non-core".
