Aug 4 (Reuters) - UK's FTSE 100 opened lower on Friday, with mining firms down and WPP falling after reducing its full-year outlook, and was on track to post its first weekly loss in four.
By 0713 GMT, the blue-chip FTSE 100 fell 0.1%, while the more domestically-focussed FTSE 250 midcap index was flat.

The broader media index was down 1.0%.
Industrial metal miners lost 0.7% as copper prices traded in a tight range.
