UK and European stocks closed mixed as investors generally struck a positive tone on the prospect of an effective coronavirus vaccine.

The dollar slipped as worries about the economic fallout from surging COVID-19 cases in the United States tempered initial enthusiasm about a possible vaccine.

Oil prices fell, pressured by fears about a slow recovery in the global economy and fuel demand due to rising coronavirus infections.

Gold held steady, with optimism over a COVID-19 vaccine countered by market concerns about its rollout.

In corporate news, Primark owner AB Foods was weaker as worries about the Covid-19 pandemic returned.

On the upside, banks were on the front foot, with Lloyds and NatWest both higher.
