    British stocks fall as profit warnings bruise IWG, Interserve

    Britain's main share index (.FTSE) fell 0.3 percent on Thursday as a weak third-quarter update from Unilever weighed, while mid- and small-cap trading was marred by profit warnings from IWG and Interserve which slashed their market value by a third. Disappointing retail sales figures sent sterling to a one-week low before recovering, helping the internationally-exposed FTSE reduce earlier losses slightly. Fresh from a record close, the FTSE 250 (.FTMC) ended 0.6 percent lower as workspace group IWG (IWG.L) plummeted 32.2 percent after warning on profit.

    FTSE inches down, Merlin collapses on poor summer trading

    British shares edged lower on Tuesday, with a flurry of trading updates driving sharp swings in individual stocks including tourist attractions operator Merlin Entertainments, which plummeted after disappointing summer sales. The FTSE (.FTSE) ended the day 0.1 percent lower, weighed down by a pullback in mining stocks as metals slipped from three-year peaks hit on Monday. The index was driven higher earlier, when the pound slipped after Bank of England policymakers speaking in parliament were interpreted by the market as broadly dovish and indicating internal debate over a November rate hike.
