- Sureserve Group swung to a first-half profit after it boosted revenue at both its energy services and compliance support divisions.

Pre-tax profit from continuing operations for the six months through March amounted to £1.1m, compared to losses of £0.5m on-year.

Revenue rose by 13% to £102.5m and included a 17% rise in compliance and a 3.9% rise in energy services.

Sureserve did not declare an interim dividend.

'The group is trading comfortably ahead of the previous year and we are well positioned for further growth,' it said.
