Bumper June for online sales

Good summer weather combined with plenty of sport resulted in a record June
for online retailing with sales up by a fifth. Shoppers spent £4.4 billion
online during the month, the equivalent of £72 for every man, woman and
child in the UK. Electricals did particularly well, due in no small way to
the World Cup football and Wimbledon tennis. Online sales increased 26% year
on year.
