- Cleaning product manufacturer McBride warned on annual earnings amid a fall in first-half revenue.

Adjusted pre-tax profit for the year through June was now expected to be around 15% lower than current market expectations, the company said.

In the first half, household revenues at constant currency had fallen 1.4% following a slowdown in the last two months of the period, especially in the UK.

Group continuing revenues at constant currency were down 4.4%, which the company said reflected a decision to exit UK aerosol manufacturing.
