FTSE 250 movers: Hammerson heads higher; Upper Crust owner SSP slides
London’s FTSE 250 was up 1% at 21,266.26 in afternoon trade on Wednesday.
Shopping centre owner Hammerson was the top gainer, buoyed by the prospect that non-essential stores will reopen in April.
Office space provider Workspace was also in the black amid expectations that more people will start to return to offices over the coming months.
Travel company TUI, cruise operator Carnival and budget airline easyJet were also boosted by hopes of a return to more normal life by the spring/summer.
Upper Crust and Ritazza owner SSP was under the cosh, having rallied sharply earlier in the week.
Aston Martin Lagonda was also weaker ahead of its full-year results on Thursday.
