Groupon given deadline to improve

Voucher company Groupon has been given three months to improve the way it operates by a UK regulator.

An investigation by the Office of Fair Trading (OFT) found "widespread" examples of breaches of consumer protection rules.

The OFT has specific concerns over "pricing, advertising, refunds, unfair terms, and the diligence of its interactions with merchants".

Groupon has agreed to change to ensure honesty with customers.
