FTSE 100 movers: Travel stocks slump; Bunzl bucks trend

(Sharecast News) - London's FTSE 100 was down 2.7% at 7,113.55 in afternoon trade on Thursday.
Travel-related shares were under pressure, with Premier Inn owner Whitbread and BA and Iberia owner IAG the two biggest losers on the index.

Discount retailer B&M European Value Retail was also weaker as it traded without entitlement to the dividend.

In a sea of red, Bunzl was the only real gainer on the index, after the distribution and services group said first-half operating margin was expected to be slightly higher than historic levels as inflation and acquisitions drove underlying growth.

Group revenue in the first half is expected to increase year-on-year by approximately 16% at actual exchange rates and by 12-13% on a constant currency basis, the company said.
