Consumer group Which? has revealed the latest results from its best and worst websites survey.

More than 7,000 shoppers gave their views on online retailers and, for the third year in a row, Homebase was at the bottom of the list of 100, with B&Q positioned just one place higher.

Shoppers were asked to rate their experiences with online retailers and Which? created a customer score for each website based on their scores.  

The three highest-rated retailers -, and - all scored 93%. was awarded a score of 57%, with one respondent advising that their complaints had been ignored by the retailer and another advising that they had placed orders that had later been cancelled as items were out of stock.

B&Q, which was 99th on the list, scored 59%, with customers complaining that the website range was lacking and prices weren't competitive.
