Like for like sales increased 5.9% excluding fuel, which was the ninth consecutive quarter of sales growth delivered by CEO Justin King, as he delivers the 'Make Sainsbury's Great Again' Campaign. Total sales increased 7.8%.

A private equity consortium, headed up by KKR continues to circle, and has until 13th April to make an offer.
