The owner of PC World and Curry's - Dixons Retail - has reported a rise in sales and profits over the past year.

It comes barely six months after its rival Comet went out of business.

Sebastian James, group chief executive of Dixons Retail told BBC Breakfast, "shops are an incredibly important part of the landscape".

He said Dixons Retail "passionately believe that customers are right to want to come in and look, touch and feel and have a conversation about these products before they buy".
