The FTSE 100 rose on Wednesday, rallying after a mass sell-off led to a 2% fall in the previous session.
The index rose 0.6%, lifted by oil giants BP Plc’s and Royal Dutch Shell’s respective gains of 2.0% and 1.7%. The surge followed a report from Azerbaijan’s energy ministry said BP’s oil output reached 5.9 million tonnes in the first quarter.
Some stocks continued to slip, however. Just Eat Takeaway.com fell 4.2%, slumping to the bottom of the index, following news that rival Uber Eats plans to expand into Germany.
