Online takeaway group Just Eat's share price rose as much as 3.9 per cent after it announced like-for-like orders leapt by 50 per cent last year.

The London-listed firm also said total orders swelled 52 per cent, including orders from its French business (Alloresto.fr) from July onwards.

Orders surged on ongoing investment across a range of business areas and the fact consumers are increasingly using their mobile apps and the internet to order takeaways.

David Buttress, chief executive of Just Eat, said "I am delighted with our continued growth in 2014 which provides an excellent base for further development of all our businesses."
