Morrisons has reported a upward push in annual gross sales and earnings as its turnaround gathers tempo.
The Bradford-based chain stated it made underlying earnings of £374m within the yr to four February, up from £337m in 2016.
Like-for-like gross sales except for gas, and stripping out retail outlets open for lower than a yr, have been up 2.eight%.
The just right efficiency allowed for the announcement of a 4p a proportion special dividend payout for its shareholders, which sees the full complete yr dividend just about double to 10.09p a proportion.
Jane Denton has the overall tale.
