June 29 (Reuters) - London shares were muted on Monday as investors feared a second round of lockdowns with global COVID-19 deaths crossing half a million, while a record plunge in British private-sector activity underlined the economic toll of the pandemic.
The blue-chip FTSE 100 was up 0.1%, with slight gains in industrials, consumer discretionary and financial stocks offsetting a decline in the consumer staples sector.
The mid-cap FTSE 250 rose 0.2%, led by auto , construction and travel and leisure stocks.
