    FTSE holds steady after UK inflation hits six-year high

    UK shares eased only slightly on Tuesday after data showing UK inflation rose to its highest in six years pushed up the pound, with rising oil prices keeping the benchmark index in positive territory. At 1000 GMT, the blue-chip FTSE 100 was up 0.17 percent at 7466.35 points after a 0.7 percent gain during the previous session. Consumer price inflation hit an annual rate of 3.1 percent in November, slightly above a 3.0 economist consensus, reflecting the impact of the pound's plunge after last year's vote to leave the European Union.

    Ashtead starts share buyback, lifts full-year forecast

    The company, which hires out diggers and tools on short-term contracts, also announced that its chairman, Chris Cole, would retire next year after serving in the position for almost 10 years. Ashtead is starting a share buyback programme of at least 500 million pounds and up to 1 billion over the next 18 months, it said on Tuesday.
