StockMarketWire.com - The UK manufacturing purchasing managers index stood at 58.2 in November, its highest level in four years, according to IHS Markit.

"Manufacturing production expanded at the fastest pace since September 2016 and to one of the greatest extents during the past four years," IHS Markit said.

"Companies linked this to stronger inflows of new orders, reflecting solid domestic demand and steeper gains in new export business."
