Smiths shares up on deal talks

On a generally grim day for shares, Smiths Group is one of the few risers in the FTSE 100 - rising 2% - as investors get their first chance to react to the news of a possible deal regarding its medical unit.

Over the weekend, Smiths said it had begun talks with US company ICU Medical about merging the two firms' healthcare operations.

Smiths said it was in "very early discussions", adding there was "no certainty" a deal would be concluded.
