LONDON - Bwin.party Digital Entertainment got a welcome boost after the German state of Schleswig-Holstein passed a new rule which enables companies to operate sports-betting websites in the area.

The new law was narrowly passed 46 to 45 in a move which sees the region break away from the country's 15 other states on the ruling of online betting.

Bus and train firm FirstGroup lost some ground on news its finance director, Jeff Carr, is going Dutch, heading off to be chief financial officer at Netherlands-based retailer Royal Ahold.

Carr will be on his bike on 11 November, at which point Nick Chevis, who has held a number of senior finance posts at FirstGroup, will take over as acting finance director until a permanent appointment is made.
