Britain's top share index rose near a 1-1/2 year high on Thursday, boosted by a rise in its heavyweight energy sector as a decision by OPEC to curb output for the first time since 2008 lifted oil prices. Energy stocks added 47 points to the FTSE 100 (.FTSE), contributing more than half of its rise. Heavyweight oil firms such as Royal Dutch Shell (RDSa.L) and BP (BP.L) were up 5.6 and 4.5 percent respectively.
