LSE resumes trading after technical problem halts early trade

Trading in British shares was halted at the open this morning with bourse operator London Stock Exchange saying it was because of technical issues.

Effectively there was no early trading in UK equities until 12.15pm after the computer problems.

Earlier this month the LSE moved to a faster trading platform.

On Tuesday, Borsa Italiana, a unit of LSE, suspended trading for hours because of a technical glitch.
