The proposed capital return will be via the special dividend and share consolidation and is in part due to revenues from disposals and steadier markets in the USA and Canada, where there has been an improvement in commercial and industrial activity.

It is in addition to the group’s final dividend of 40p. This makes a full year dividend of 60p, 33% up on last year.
