European shares rose to a five-month high on Thursday, boosted by gains in the banking sector after Britain's parliament voted against an unregulated exit from the European Union.

Market sentiment improved from cautious to optimistic at the start of the trading session, before another vote on Thursday evening could delay Britain's planned departure from the European Union.

Leonardo's shares posted their best day in more than seven years with a 13 percent gain, recovering some of its sharp losses since January 2018, after the Italian military group said its net profit jumped and expects sales to rise in 2019.
