UK retailers hope Cyber Monday pays off after flat-footed Black Friday
Britain’s retailers are hoping the flat reaction to Black Friday on the high street, when shoppers preferred trawling the internet to visiting a department store, will pay off on Cyber Monday as the pre-Christmas discounting spree moves online. Imported from the US like its Black Friday cousin, Cyber Monday is forecast to bring in more than £900m for online retailers – up nearly a third on last year. By the end of Cyber Monday, total sales over the four-day shopping event will surpass £3bn in the UK, some analysts have predicted.
Boost for UK car manufacturing as Nissan ramps up in Sunderland
Nissan will begin making its luxury Infiniti cars in Sunderland this week as part of a £250m investment in the factory, a landmark move that heralds a massive triumph for British industry. For the first time, the Japanese carmaker has chosen to build an upmarket model in Europe, a decision that represents a huge vote of confidence in the north-eastern factory, which has become one of the country’s biggest manufacturing success stories. Sunderland is now the most productive car plant on the Continent, with vehicle output dwarfing that of the whole of Italy. Every Sunderland worker makes an average of 118 cars a year and the factory has been at its 500,000- unit annual capacity since 2011. In Italy, 401,317 cars were built last year.
No SOS phone signal on thousands of miles of Britain’s roads
More than 4,500 miles of road have no mobile signal for drivers seeking help. Among spots lacking any 2G coverage were the Highlands, Powys, Argyll and Bute, Cumbria, Devon and Dumfries and Galloway, said the RAC Foundation.
Director Steve Gooding said: “There are thousands of miles along which you would not want to break down or have an accident.”
Drivers who break down on over 4,500 miles of Britain’s roads cannot call for help because there is no mobile phone coverage, a motoring charity has warned. A study by the RAC Foundation found 4,561 miles of road – representing about 2% of the entire network – do not have any 2G coverage, which is the minimum required to make a call or send a text.
