Britain’s top stock market closed at its lowest level since December 2012 on Monday.
The FTSE 100 closed down 1.32% at 5874,06.
Mining stocks were the biggest fallers, but the big driver was the oil price.
Oil continued to dive on Monday, following a big sell-off on Friday. The FTSE 100 held up relatively well until the US opened. US stocks turning lower spooked the market, leading to a steep late afternoon dive.
Let’s hope Tuesday is better.
