Morrisons report drives share price up six per cent

Have your say

MORRISONS set the pace in the FTSE 100 Index yesterday amid speculation that the Bradford retailer is lining up some much-needed cheer for shareholders.

The chain, which last week posted a poor Christmas trading update, is reportedly planning an £800m raid on its property estate as it looks at ways of building up a cash pile that can be returned to investors.

Last night shares closed up 6 per cent at 251.30p.
