Further signs of a bumper high street Christmas emerged as bakery chain Greggs said it sold more than a million mince pies each week of the festive period.

Comparative sales during the four weeks to December 26 grew 1.1%, while Christmas week was described as a "very strong performance" with a 4.4% increase.

Greggs said the snowy weather had presented challenges and praised staff for keeping shops open.
