FTSE 250 movers: Upper Crust owner SSP surges; AO World falls

(Sharecast News) - London's FTSE 250 was up 0.3% at 21,047.54 in afternoon trade on Tuesday. Travel and leisure stocks rallied amid the prospect of easing restrictions, with Upper Crust and Ritazza owner SSP the top gainer, while WH Smith, Cineworld, easyJet and Mecca Bingo owner Rank Group also rose sharply.

EasyJet said earlier that it had seen a surge in bookings after Prime Minister Boris Johnson outlined the government's lockdown exit strategy on Monday.

Office space provider Workspace was also in the black, likely amid expectations that more workers will be returning to offices in the next few months.

On the downside, online electrical goods retailer AO World - which has benefited from Covid-related restrictions and lockdowns - was on the back foot.
