Marks and Spencer has suffered another fall in sales in its general merchandise division.

The company's chief executive Marc Bolland explained to the Today programme that despite like-for-like sales being down 2.1% in the three months to the end of December, sales were "generally improving".

He said this was due to the retailer's "step-by-step approach to improve merchandise".

Mr Bolland said Marks and Spencer are "reshaping [their] complete estate" and have already "completely revamped" 70 stores.

He said the company remain ahead of its rivals in the food market.
