    FTSE led lower by AB Foods and utilities

    Britain's blue-chip index fell on Thursday, led lower by utilities and a decline for Associated British Foods (ABF.L) after warning that profit at its sugar business would fall more than previously forecast. The FTSE (.FTSE) ended 0.3 percent down at 7,700.96 points and the mid-cap index (.FTMC) finished with a 0.5 percent fall. Utilities were weaker after a junior minister told a parliamentary committee that Britain hoped to pass laws to allow the capping of the most common form of gas and electricity tariffs for millions of households by the summer.

    AB Foods' sugar outlook soured by lower EU prices

    Associated British Foods (ABF.L) warned on Thursday that revenue and profit from its sugar business would fall more than previously forecast in 2017-18 because of lower prices across the European Union, sending its shares lower.

    Energy, mining stocks drag FTSE lower

    Oil and mining companies dragged Britain's FTSE 100 index to a negative close on Tuesday, tracking energy and metals prices lower, after gaining earlier in the session on a fall in sterling. The blue chip FTSE 100 (.FTSE) index ended down 0.28 percent at 7,747.18 points, retreating further from a record set last week and slightly underperforming the broader European market. Interest rate-sensitive banks propped up the FTSE, but the downward pressure from oil and mining shares grew through the rest of the session, pulling the index into the red.
