London’s FTSE 250 was down 1% at 19,679.63 in afternoon trade on Friday.

Travel-related shares Wizz and Carnival both fell as oil prices jumped amid growing tensions in the Middle East.

Aston Martin was under the cosh as Barclays previewed the first-quarter results due on 1 May.

“With volumes primarily from DB12 and DBX, we view Q1 as the first of two ‘transition quarters…before volumes of the next generation sport cars accelerate in H2,” it said.

“Greater focus will likely be on the new DB12/Vantage order books and comments/comfort on the H2 earnings/free cash flow trajectory.”
