Dixons Carphone Currys PC World 15

Dixons Carphone has been forced to re-issue its Christmas trading update after a clerical error in its original filing.

The electricals giant said this morning that group revenue had risen 2% on a reported currency basis during the 10 weeks to January 4.

But it admitted this afternoon that sales actually dropped 2% over its peak trading period.

Dixons said all other figures issued in its update this morning, including like-for-like sales across its core UK and Ireland and international businesses were correct.
