retail-sale-tags-and-clearance-tags-vector-id875929214?profile=RESIZE_400xStore closures enforced by Covid curbs pushed down UK retail sales in November, figures have indicated.

Sales fell by 3.8% last month, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) said, bringing to an end a six-month streak of rising trade.

Clothing store sales saw a sharp fall from the previous month, the ONS said, while food stores and household goods stores were the only sectors that grew.
