Worst Christmas sales on record due to snow

Shops on high streets up and down the UK had their worst ever December on record according to figures released on Friday.

The fall is being blamed on severe winter weather and higher prices. The figures also indicate that shoppers seem to have turned away from the big out of town stores to local shops and the internet.
