Greene King (GNK) shares fizzed up 3% after the FTSE 250 pubs chain reported a rise in sales in the last financial year, thanks to a summer heatwave and the footbal World Cup. 

Group revenue for the year was 1.8% higher at £2.2 billion although pre-tax profits dropped 12.5% to £172 million. The fall in profits was attributed to a rise in one-off outlays linked to the company’s properties costing the firm £90 million. Excluding exceptional items, pre-tax profits were up 1.6% to £246 million. Net debt has edged down from £2 billion to £1.94 billion.
