Non-executive director Christopher Geoghegan buys shares in contractor

A non-executive director of Kier Group has bought 5,000 shares in the contractor and housebuilder.

Christopher Geoghegan, who is also group chief executive of BAE Systems, bought the shares at £13.55 each, according to The Times.

The share price has been relatively low despite Kier having been named last week as preferred partner for a £500m Network Rail regeneration scheme.
