Pearson profits soar on strong FT performance

Pearson, the owner of the Financial Times, has announced first half profits of $142m.

Sales of books to schools and colleges in the US were strong. The Financial Times also did well, with revenue up 9%.

The FT is one of the few newspapers to successfully charge readers for full access to its website.
