(Close): The supermarket sector was the biggest loser in Friday trading in London, but the FTSE 100 still managed to notch up gains.
In the wake of Tesco's profit warning, the beleaguered chain saw its share price fall 6.6% by the end of the day.
However, the benchmark index was higher overall at the end of the morning. It rose 13.95 points or 0.21% to 6,819.75.
Biggest riser was pharmaceutical firm AstraZeneca, which added 2%.
