LONDON, April 26 (Reuters) - European shares slightly trimmed losses in late trade on Friday as U.S. consumer sentiment data beat expectations, helping revive investor appetite after a string of poor economic numbers earlier in the day.

The Thomson Reuters/University of Michigan's final April consumer sentiment index was revised up to 76.4 compared to a preliminary figure of 72.3 and consensus expectations of 73.2.

The FTSEurofirst 300 index of pan-European shares slightly trimmed its losses after the U.S. data to trade 0.3 percent lower at 1,197.38 points.
