Shares in China led gains in mixed Asia-Pacific trading following the release of better-than-expected Chinese economic data.

Gold prices were lifted from near one-month lows by weaker Treasury yields.

In corporate news, WH Smith said it expected annual results to be at the upper end of expectations as it reported a surge in revenue over pre-Covid pandemic levels for the first time, driven by a recovery in the travel market.
