FTSE 100 closes higher at 7,146.75

The benchmark FTSE 100 closed at 7,146.75, a rise of 31 points or 0.43%.

The biggest climber on the index was packaging group Smurfit Kappa Group which closed up 19.7% following a bid from US rival International Paper.

Just Eat was the biggest faller, losing 12.6%. Its results were positive but its boss said it would spent an extra £50m this year to fight off competition from rivals like Deliveroo and Uber Easts.
