    UPDATE 2-Burberry leads FTSE 100 higher, mid-caps glide over sterling slip

    London's main index rose on Tuesday as Burberry scaled an 11-month high after its first-quarter update showed new designs boosted sales, and a weaker sterling aided exporter stocks, while mid-caps rose in a rare break from the domestic currency. The FTSE 100 added 0.6%, its best day in nearly 2 weeks, outperforming the broader European markets. Gains in easyJet and Aston Martin helped the domestically-focused FTSE 250 advance 0.4%, despite a hit to the local currency from mounting Brexit jitters.

    UPDATE 3-UK motor insurer Hastings warns of hit from discount rate change

    British motor insurer Hastings warned on Tuesday of a $10 million hit to its profits from a change in the discount rate used to calculate compensation for personal injuries, with rivals expected to follow. Hastings' shares fell nearly 5%, among the biggest falls on the FTSE mid-cap index, after the company said it would take an 8.4 million pounds ($10.5 million) pre-tax charge in 2019, in response to Britain's decision on Monday to change the so-called Ogden rate to minus 0.25% from minus 0.75%. The change follows lobbying from motor insurers, whose profits were hit by a cut in the rate from 2.5% in 2017.

    UPDATE 2-UK's main index sees 7th straight day of losses, BoE comments lift midcaps

    London's FTSE 100 saw its seventh day in the red on Friday, its longest losing streak since 2015, led lower by losses in pharmaceuticals after the U.S. White House scrapped a rebate rule, while the midcap bourse jumped on prospects of lower interest rates. The UK's blue-chip index edged 0.1% lower after trading in positive territory for most of the session as its more internationally-exposed constituents such as miners climbed on hopes of an interest rate cut by the U.S Federal Reserve. The mid-cap FTSE 250, however, saw a 0.6% rise as a Bank of England official said that the BoE might need to cut interest rates almost to zero after a no-deal Brexit.
