H&T Group, a High Street pawnbroker, has said that it expects its pre-tax profits to be in line with expectations.

At the year-end the group's pledge book was £51.6m, which it said was driven by both new store openings and the group stratifying its interest rates to become more competitive on larger loans.

Gold purchasing was down on the previous year, as had been expected.

The share price rose 4.38% to 295p by 13:45.
