TORONTO Oct 8 (Reuters) - The Toronto Stock Exchange's main index ended more than 200 points higher on Wednesday in a volatile session, as surprising, co-ordinated interest rate cuts by several central banks restored some confidence to markets and lit a fire under mining stocks.

The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE unofficially ended up 228.67 points, or 2.33 percent, at 10,058.22. (Reporting by Cameron French; editing by Rob Wilson)
