John Lewis has reinstated its staff bonus package after the business delivered rising sales and profits this year.

The department store retailer recorded a profit before exceptional items of £181m in the year to January 29, up 38% compared with the previous year and 111% on two years ago.

This meant the business achieved its minimum threshold of £150m so it has restored its staff bonus of 3% to all partners, while the executive team donated their bonuses to the British Red Cross.
