London stocks recouped part of the previous day’s losses on Friday which had taken the top-flight index to its worst level since the Brexit referendum, as investors eyed the release of the latest non-farm payrolls report.

In currency markets, the pound was down 0.51% against the dollar at 1.27220 and 0.54% lower versus the euro at 1.1177 ahead of next week’s parliamentary vote on Theresa May’s Brexit deal.

While the gains in London came as a welcome relief after Thursday’s “horrible” session, “this only claws back some of the losses”, said Russ Mould, investment director at AJ Bell.
