FTSE 250 Movers: Premier Foods bites back

Food manufacturer Premier Foods clawed back some of the losses it sustained on Friday when it announced a 29% drop in trading profits from ongoing operations.

For the half year ended 25 June, the company saw profits fall 29% to £69m, down from £94m, in the corresponding quarter a year earlier.

New World Resources was one of numerous mining companies to see its share price come tumbling down on the back of a fragile economy and falling base metal prices.
