Asda Sales rose 1.8% in second quarter after three-year slump

Supermarket chain Asda has reported its first quarterly like-for-like sales growth for three years.

Sales rose 1.8% in the second quarter after a bumper Easter, helped by price cuts and more customers shopping at its stores.

Removing the benefit of Easter from the results, Asda's like-for-like sales were 0.7% higher.
