Shares prices generally at londonstockexchange.com etc

Maybe this is the wrong board and it is, seemingly, a naïve question.

When I look here http://www.londonstockexchange.com/exch ... ml?lang=en I see:

Price (GBX) 111.00, which is higher than the Offer of 109.50. I'd assumed the former would normally be the Mid. The 111.00 is the previous close and londonstockexchange.com shows no Var % (+/-) (I do realise Air Partner have gone XD today).

When I look here https://www.investegate.co.uk/CompData.aspx?AIR I see a Mid of 107.75, which is what I'd expected to have seen at londonstockexchange.com.

This isn't the first time I've noticed such discrepancies and I'm only using Air Partner as an example.

Is londonstockexchange.com broken on this front?

Have you looked at the documentation for londonstockexchange.com's price listings?

They recently did an overhaul of this aspect but neither before that nor after do I place any reliance whatsoever on the prices published and I will not do so until I see comprehensive documentation adequately and accurately describing what is published.

Thanks. I did look briefly but was wondering if anyone knew this was a known issue. At least the apparent Mid Price is now within the spread.
