Shopping centre owner Hammerson has posted falling profits and rental income during its full-year results.
Registering a 10.9% fall in profits to £214m during the 12 months to December 31, Hammerson also saw rental income for the same period drop 11.2% to £308.5m.

“This delivered nearly £1bn of transactions in the process,” Atkins added.
