FTSE 100 bolstered by Madame Tussauds owner Merlin
Shares in RBS and Merlin Entertainments were boosted by their latest results, but the market was flat overall. Merlin shares rose nearly 2%, despite the firm - which owns the London Eye. The company reported half-year profits of £50m, unchanged from a year earlier. RBS shares rose 3.5% after the bank reported its first half-year profits for three years. The FTSE 100 was little changed in early trade, down 4.49 points at 7,470.28.
