LONDON (SHARECAST) - Leading the fallers was plumbers' merchant Wolseley which saw like-for-like growth slow down in its fiscal third quarter as it runs up against tougher comparatives from last year.
Banking groups were also providing a drag in London with heavyweight constituents RBS, Lloyds, and Standard Chartered all heading lower. Investor sentiment has been dented by news of the Bank of England's preparations to guard against the impact on the euro should Greece or any other countries defect from the single currency.
Meanwhile, many of the mining giants advanced on the back of speculation that China may administer further stimulus measures to boost growth, with Glencore, Evraz and Xstrata leading the way.
British Airways parent International Consolidated Airlines Group was back on top following heavy losses on Monday which came after the president of Bankia (which holds a 12% interest in IAG) said the bank would sell assets to raise much needed funds.
