- Masonry products manufacturer Forterra said its revenue in the first four months of the year had increased by 12%, boosted by its acquisition of Bison.

Trading during the period was impacted by severe winter storms, though the company said the overall shortfall was expected to be made through the rest of the year.

Price increases had now been agreed with most customers in order to cover an increase in the cost base, the company said.

'The outlook for the group remains positive and the board's expectations for the full year remain unchanged,' it added.

At 2:31pm: [LON:FORT] Forterra Plc share price was +0.5p at 332.5p
