Half year revenue was £210.2m, compared with £210.0m in the same period last year.

Martin Payne, the chief executive, said: “Against a backdrop of mixed market conditions and adverse weather the group has performed well in the first half.

“With the group’s balanced business model, underpinned by the long-term growth drivers of legacy material substitution and continuing legislative tailwinds in water management and climate change, I am confident the group will make good progress in the second half of the year.”
