    Sterling slide boosts FTSE while results drive Smiths Group down

    A weaker pound helped Britain's top share index march higher on Wednesday as company earnings took centre stage with Smiths Group suffering. The blue-chip FTSE 100 (.FTSE) index climbed 0.7 percent, in line with a broader rally among European stocks as the second quarter earnings season steps into gear. Shares in easyJet (EZJ.L) were among the top gainers, up 2.1 percent, after the budget airline upgraded its full-year guidance and said that profit could jump by as much as 45 percent in 2018.
