Supermarkets cleared to sell legal services

Banks and supermarkets are to be able to sell consumer legal services in England and Wales for the first time following a change in law.

The government says the new Legal Services Act will offer more choice and better value for the public.

It says it also means law firms will benefit from investment and allow them to explore new markets.
