In Currency Markets the pound slid against the euro to its weakest since mid-September, hurt by a rally in the single currency and concerns about whether Britain can secure a post-Brexit trade deal with the European Union.

But sterling fell to trade as weak as 90.390 pence per euro on Friday, a fresh 11-month low. The British currency rose as high as $1.2880, up nearly half a percent on the day, before settling around $1.2845.
