April 21 Reuters Londons FTSE 100 rebounded from a 2 fall in the previous session to edge higher on Wednesday as commodity stocks gained, while Just Eat Takeaway.com slipped to the bottom of index following Uber Eats plan to foray into the German market.

The bluechip index rose 0.4, with oil majors BP Plc and Royal Dutch Shell adding 2.2 and 2.0, respectively, as Azerbaijans energy ministry said BPs oil output was 5.9 million tonnes in the first quarter.
