Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) will close several branches across ScotlandReuters

The FTSE 100 fell 1.18% to 6,949 as the Royal Bank of Scotland's share price went down 2.79% to 345.2p as a result of its announcement to close branches across Scotland.

RBS was only the fourth biggest faller, however. After analysts gave mining company Fresnillo a 'hold' rating, the Mexican company lead the fallers with a 3.54% decrease to 736p.

The second biggest faller, Randgold Resources, saw its share fall by 3.52% following the company's announcement it would put 250,000 extra shares on the market.

The privatised Royal Mail was the biggest FTSE 100 riser of the day after it reported a 6% rise in profit on May 21. The shares of the delivery company were up 3.57% at 521.5p when the market closed.

A fall in oil price to $58.45 per barrel fuelled an Easyjet share price jump of 1.57% despite competitors Ryanair's profit rise.
