Britain's top share index hit a two-week low on Friday and ended a run of three straight weeks of gains, with lenders Standard Chartered (BSE: 580001.BO - news) and RBS among the biggest fallers. The blue-chip FTSE 100 index closed 0.4 percent down, having touched its lowest since Feb. 10 earlier in the session, to finish with a 0.8 percent decline on the week. Shares (Berlin: DI6.BE - news) in RBS fell 4.5 percent after the bank reported a sharp jump in losses as higher misconduct charges and restructuring costs underscored the challenges facing the lender nine years after it was bailed out in the world's biggest bank rescue.
