- Ryanair has reported record full year profits of 13% and rising revenues which saw it trading up 6% during the first hour of trading in the UK. On the other hand First Group was seen trading at 183 down 18% after its pre-tax profit had fallen 36.5%, however, it has since announced a £615m right issue in a bid to reduce its debt.

- Major indices were seen slightly down this morning, FTSE down 10 at 6735, Dow Jones down 16 at 15,330 and the Dax down 16 at 8435.
