UK and European markets closed higher, as positive momentum was maintained on a busy week of earnings.

The dollar weakened against most currencies after economic data showed more signs of softening in the U.S. labour market.

Oil prices rose as falling U.S. crude inventories and higher Chinese imports supported expectations for demand growth in the world’s two largest crude-consuming nations.

Broadcaster ITV reported a fall in first-quarter revenues on Thursday, dragged lower by the production arm which was hit by the US writers’ and actors’ strike.

ITV Studios revenue was also hit by weaker demand from free-to-air broadcasters in Europe, who have been holding back spend until they see more certainty in the advertising market, the company said.
