Tesco, which has stores across the region has this morning announced a return to profit.

This is the first quarterly sales growth for the company for three years.

The supermarket giant reported a £162m statutory pre-tax profit for the year to the end of February.

The results follow last year's £6.4bn loss, the worst results in its history.

Tesco chief executive Dave Lewis said the group had made "significant progress".

He said: "Our balance sheet is stronger and we are making good progress in rebuilding trust in Tesco and our investment case."
