European Shares Recover Ground After Losses

Shares have recovered some ground from Thursday's steep losses, which came after the US Fed said it could scale back its stimulus programme.

The main share indexes in the UK, Germany and France recorded gains of up to 1% in morning trade.

Earlier, Asian stocks had been mixed, falling sharply at first before recovering some ground later on.

On Thursday, leading US shares saw their biggest fall of the year so far - with the Dow Jones dropping 2.3%.
