The figures from the British Retail Consortium (BRC) show that like-for-like sales fell 1.5 per cent

in April compared with the same month last year. This followed the 1.6 per cent sales decline in March as the retail sector plumbed depths not seen since 2005. However, total sales, which include outlets that were not open last year, rose by one per cent over the month.

The only sectors to record a rising sales were food, homewares and toiletries.
