(Close): London's top shares slid in Friday trade, with housebuilders dragging the market down after hints from Bank of England governor Mark Carney that interest rates might rise this year.

Persimmon was the biggest faller, down 7%, while Barratt lost 6.3%.

Property firms Land Securities and British Land were both more than 4% lower.

The benchmark FTSE 100 index declined 65.26 points or 0.95% to 6,777.85.

Fears over violence in Iraq and possible oil shortages also exerted pressure on airline shares. Budget airline Easyjet and IAG, which owns British Airways and Iberia, were both down about 3%.

On the currency markets, the pound rose 0.22% against the dollar to $1.6965 and climbed 0.35% against the euro to 1.2535 euros.
