UK retail sales rose last month, official figures have shown, as the colder weather boosted sales of warm clothing.

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) said sales increased by 0.3% in November compared with the month before.

Compared with a year earlier, sales were up 2%, the ONS said.

Kate Davies, head of retail at the ONS, said there was "quite a mixed picture across the retail sector".
