Shares in shopping centre landlord intu have collapsed by almost 40% after a John Whittaker and Brookfield-led consortium announced it was withdrawing its takeover bid.

Intu shares fell to as low as 114p today, closing at 116.95p, almost half the 210.4p a share indicative offer made by Peel Group, the Olayan Group and Brookfield Property Group.
