London - Shareholders in commodity trader Glencore voted overwhelmingly on Tuesday in favour of its long-awaited $31bn takeover of miner Xstrata.

Glencore said 99.4% of voting shareholders supported the resolution on the tie-up.

Xstrata shareholders vote later on Tuesday, with a first meeting scheduled for 15:00.
