In London, Metals and mining stocks including Anglo American and BHP Billion 2.214% fell on news of an unexpected 8.3% drop in Chinese exports in July and an 8.1% slump in imports, along with the biggest decline in Chinese producer prices in nearly six years. Dixons Carphone also fell after the company said its Carphone Warehouse business had been hit by a cyber attack. Insurer Esure retreated on disappointing half-year results.
