Bargain hunters descend on Boxing Day sales

Millions of shoppers have taken advantage of Boxing Day sales across the UK, with some stores opening their doors at 06:00 GMT to queuing crowds.

Selfridges reported its best-ever first hour of trade, taking more than £2m between 09:00 GMT and 10:00 GMT.
