The FTSE100 closed up 1.50 points at 6,735.12 aided by mining stocks, although a slump in Barclays share price held back the market.

Mining stocks such as Rio Tinto (up 1.23%) climbed as Copper prices rose towards a 4 month peak.

However, Barclays slumped by 6.52% after the New York Attorney General filed a securities fraud lawsuit against the bank for giving an unfair edge to its U.S. high-frequency trading clients.
