UK retail sales grew at their fastest rate in more than three years in February, as the drier weather coaxed shoppers back out onto the High Street.
The British Retail Consortium (BRC) said like-for-like retail sales were up 2.7% on the previous year.
That is the fastest rate of like-for-like sales growth since December 2009, the group said.
It said customer demand for electrical goods was the “growth engine” of the High Street.
