Sterling tumbled against the dollar and the euro on Thursday after a slew of bad news for the UK economy. The pound fell 0.4 per cent against the single currency to €1.12, and 0.9 per cent against the dollar to $1.31. The fall came on the back of weak car sales data and questions from ratings agency, Standard & Poors, over the economy’s ability to withstand an interest rate rise. Markets were also weighing increased uncertainty over the future leadership of the Government after Theresa May’s calamitous speech to the Conservative Party conference on Wednesday. The pound’s weakness gave a slight boost to the FTSE 100, which closed up 0.5 per cent at 7,507.99, as many of its listed multinational stocks generate much of their income in foreign currencies.
