Sterling trims losses after UK lawmakers back Brexit delay

LONDON, March 14 (Reuters) - Sterling rose slightly on Thursday after the British parliament backed a government motion to seek a delay to the date for the departure from the European Union.

The pound, under pressure as traders booked profits from this week's rally, recovered some of its losses to touch $1.3280 from around $1.3260 before the vote result was announced. That still left the pound down half a percent.

Against the euro sterling also erased some of its losses and at 1825 GMT was down 0.3 percent at 85.16 pence.
