FTSE 100 at two year low

The FTSE 100 fell to its lowest level since December 2016, down 2.303pc at 6,762.41, as a selloff in Asia gained momentum, with miners and oil companies amongst the worst affected.

Brent crude was down 2.29pc at $60.15 during midday trading having plummeted to $58.60 during the morning session, presenting signs of weakening global growth across the markets.

Sterling held flat above a one and a half year low, trading at $1.2659 against the dollar, as concerns mounted over next week’s Brexit vote in parliament.
