We've announced a strong trading performance over the Christmas period, demonstrating our improvements to product and value. Our focus on everyday style helped Clothing & Home grow for the second successive quarter and our Food business continues to outperform the market. M&S customers are coming to us for more of their everyday shopping, leading to larger basket sizes and making us the fastest growing major store-based Food retailer in the period. Our CEO, Steve Rowe, said: "The market continues to be impacted by the headwinds and tailwinds that we reported in the first half, but I remain encouraged that our transformation plan is now driving improved performance.”
