British shares steadied on Wednesday as investors' anticipation of a rate rise from the U.S. Federal Reserve drove financial stocks higher while high-yielding consumer stocks suffered.

The prospect of rising rates in the United States drove sector performance on Wednesday, boosting financials while dragging on housebuilders and consumer stocks.
UK shares rose to their highest in a month on Tuesday as rising oil prices boosted energy stocks and the pound retreated, even though British UK inflation rose to its highest in six years.
