PORTMEIRIO­N, the maker of Royal Worcester porcelain, climbed sharply after it reported a record set of halfyear results.

For the six months to the end of June, the Stoke-on-Trentbased pottery firm posted a profit of £1.5m.

That swung from a £2.7m loss a year ago, while company revenues increased by 35pc to a record £43.1m.

The potter flagged up strong growth in its key South Korean market, adding that it also expects to resume dividend payments this year.

Portmeirio­n’s shares jumped 9.7pc, or 60p, to 680p on the back of the news.
