LONDON (Reuters) - Britain's top share index rose on Wednesday, building on a rally in the previous session, as solid U.S. economic data reassured investors concerned about the prospect of diminished stimulus from the Federal Reserve.
The FTSE 100 <.FTSE> was up 27.86 points, or 0.5 percent, at 6,129.77 by 0802 GMT, having risen 1.2 percent in the previous session.
The UK benchmark had fallen some 12 percent over the last month after hitting a 13-year high of 6,875.62 in late May.
