Sky reported strong third quarter results on Tuesday, sending its share price higherReuters

Britain's FTSE 100 made minor gains on 21 April as some of the biggest mining companies slumped, led by Anglo-Australian giant Rio Tinto, whose trading update disappointed investors.

Anglo American and BHP Billiton also fell but the day's biggest faller was Associated British Foods, owner of discount fashion chain Primark, which fell 151 points. The company reported profits halved in the six months to February and warned full-year profits could be affected, following a dramatic slump in sugar prices in the European Union.

Sky was the top performer, gaining 53 points after it posted better-than-expected third-quarter results. Overall, the index finished the day at 7,062.93, up 10.8 points.
