Supermarket woes dent FTSE 100
London's top share market slipped on Wednesday, following a poor performance by the supermarket sector.
Tesco was the biggest loser on the FTSE 100 index, diving 5.73% after its full-year profits fell because of legal costs arising from a fine for overstating its profits in 2014.
Rival Sainsbury's also came under strain, dropping 1.32%, while Morrisons suffered as well, shedding 1.07%.
By the end of the day, the FTSE 100 had lost 16.51 points or 0.22% to 7,348.99.
Miners also did badly with Rio Tinto, Anglo American, BHP Billiton and Glencore among the day's worst performers.
