Snow disruption dents Tesco sales


Heavy snow has hit Tesco's trading figures, the company said

Supermarket giant Tesco has reported a 1.5% hike in third-quarter UK sales, but warned that the recent snow had impacted trading.

Britain’s biggest retailer revealed its UK growth sped up since the first half, when like-for-like sales excluding petrol increased by 1.2%.

Heavy snow hit trading in some parts of the country, particularly Scotland, where many customers were not able to travel to stores, but Tesco said it hoped to recover the lost sales in the weeks before Christmas.
