Shop sales rise in UK

UK retailers saw a recovery in sales last month, official figures have revealed today.

However, revised estimates show December, which was hit with a big freeze, was even worse than originally thought.

Retail sales volumes declined 1.4pc month-on-month in December, downgraded from a 0.8pc drop, which was already the worst performance on record for the month, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) said.
