London stocks rose in early trade on Friday following heavy losses in the previous session, as investors mulled the latest UK GDP figures.
At 0825 BST, the FTSE 100 was up 0.5% at 7,068.68, having slumped on Thursday amid a global selloff sparked by recovery concerns.
Data released earlier by the Office for National Statistics showed that economic growth slowed to 0.8% in May from a revised 2% in April, coming in well below expectations for 1.5% growth. April’s figure was revised down from 2.3%.
