■ PUB group Marston’s is optimistic about the year and hailed ‘encouragin­g’ Christmas bookings, despite posting widening losses.

The company, which runs 1,500 UK venues, remains positive despite the spread of the Omicron Covid-19 variant.

The stock fell on Tuesday amid a sell-off of hospitalit­y stocks over fears of new restrictio­ns. But the firm says it has a full stock of turkeys for its festive period bookings.

Underlying pre-tax losses widened to £100m for the year to October 2, from £22m.

Revenues for the year fell to £423.8m from £821m. Shares dipped 6.5pc, or 4.55p, to 65p.
