UPDATE 2-UK mid-caps hit record high on recovery hopes; M&A chatter boosts Meggitt

markets, click LIVE/ or type LIVE/ in a news window)

* St. Modwen Properties surges on $1.68 bln buyout offer

* Melrose rises on Morgan Stanley PT hike

* FTSE 100 up 0.7%, FTSE 250 adds 1.2%
(Updates to market close)

By Shivani Kumaresan and Devik Jain

May 7 (Reuters) - Britain’s mid-cap index closed at a record
high on Friday as hopes of a stronger economic recovery lifted
industrial and consumer discretionary stocks, while Meggitt
shares soared on a takeover report.

The domestically focused mid-cap FTSE 250 index
advanced 1.2%, with industrial stocks, including Easyjet Plc
, IMI Plc and Pagegroup Plc, rising
between 2.7% and 5.1%.

The blue-chip index rose 0.7%, clocking its best
week since April with Melrose Industries adding 1.8%
after Morgan Stanley raised its price target on the engineer's
shares.

Mining stocks, mainly Anglo American, Glencore Plc
and Rio Tinto Plc, provided the biggest boost
on the index, gaining between 0.7% and 3.6%.

"The solid rise comes after the BoE upgraded its growth
forecasts for the UK. Confirmation of stronger growth from the
BoE has added to market confidence that the recovery is firmly
on track," said Sophie Griffiths, market analyst, UK & EMEA,
OANDA.

"With further easing of lockdown measures later this month,
economic growth is likely to accelerate."

Both the indexes have gained 10% year-to-date as investors
flocked to energy, materials and banking stocks that are seen
benefiting the most from a stronger economic recovery due to
speedy COVID-19 vaccine rollouts and government policy support.

St. Modwen Properties surged 20.0% to the top of
midcap index after it received a potential takeover offer from
private equity firm Blackstone, valuing the property
developer at around 1.21 billion pounds ($1.68 billion).

Meggitt jumped 8.3% on a report that U.S. group Woodward Inc
was looking to acquire the UK aero-engineer.

Barclays gained 2.5% after activist investor
Sherborne sold its 6% stake in the company, disbanding its
efforts to overhaul the British bank.
