The Company announces that on 29 September 2009 it allotted 409,453
ordinary shares of 25p each to shareholders who agreed to subscribe
for shares under the terms of the Company's Dividend Investment
Scheme. The subscription price was 70.0p per share. Following the
above allotment, there are 40,580,261 ordinary shares in issue.

Application will be made at the earliest practicable opportunity for
these shares, which will rank pari passu with existing ordinary
shares, to be admitted to the Official List of the UK Listing
Authority and to trading on the London Stock Exchange's market for
listed securities.

In conformity with the Transparency Directive, the Company notifies
the market that the capital of the Company consists of 40,580,261
ordinary shares with a nominal value of 25p each and 20,409,465 C
shares with a nominal value of 75p each. All the shares have voting
rights.

The Company does not hold any ordinary shares or C shares in
treasury.

Therefore, the total number of voting rights in the Company is
60,989,726 (the "Figure").

The Figure may be used by a shareholder or other person as the
denominator for the calculations by which he will determine if he is
required to notify the voting rights he holds in relation to the
Company, or a change to those voting rights, under the FSA's
Disclosure and Transparency Rules.
