'We have again delivered an above target dividend of 7.25 pence per share and seen a NAV total return of 18% for the year.

'Following another year of outperformance, our focus remains on optimising our revenue from the existing portfolio in a challenging market and on strong operational management through BSL, who will also actively pursue further value enhancing strategies across our portfolio.

'Whilst not underestimating the challenge posed by the desire to increase our dividends in line with RPI, we look forward to another successful year, delivering attractive returns to our shareholders.'
