Retail and internet sales both up

Internet sales grew in July at their fastest pace since before the recession as wet weather encouraged home shopping, a survey suggests. Online sales grew by 18% in the month compared with a year earlier, the biggest jump since 2007, IMRG said.

Figures published on Thursday also showed total UK retail sales rising much faster than expected in July. Sales volumes jumped 1.1% compared with June, the Office for National Statistics said, with almost all non-food sectors showing strong growth.
