Meggitt profits drop by a fifth

DEFENCE and areospace engineer Meggitt has seen its first-half pre-tax profit tumble 20 per cent to £98.2 million in the six months to June 30, with military orders weaker than expected as governments cut back on defence budgets.

The Dorset-based firm said its full-year sales growth will be in the low single digits.
