M&S sees clothing sales fall again

Marks and Spencer has blamed "unseasonal conditions in September" for its 13th consecutive quarterly drop in clothing sales.

The 130-year-old retailer said like-for-like general merchandise sales - which are primarily clothing - fell 4% in the second quarter.

Despite the drop, M&S boss Marc Bolland said he was pleased with its progress in "challenging market conditions".
