How Lloyds' return to profit affects a shares sell-off

Lloyds Banking Group has returned to profit, after announcing it made £2.1bn ($3.2bn) in the six months to the end of June.

It compares with a loss of £456m for the same period last year.

The result paves the way for the government to sell off its £19bn stake.

Dom Laurie takes a look at the figures and explains how they affect a potential shares sell-off.
