StockMarketWire.com - UK retail sales grew by a meager 0.1% in January, compared to the previous month, according to the Office for National Statistics.

The market was hoping for a 0.5% rise.

Declines were recorded in all major sectors except non-food stores, amid reports from retailers that punters aimed to 'get fit and lose weight' in the New Year, the ONS said.
