    UK online sales rose by more than 50% in the three months to Christmas, according to an industry survey.
    Internet sales between 1 October and 31 December hit £15.2bn, up from £9.61bn a year earlier, with electronics and clothing doing well, Capgemini said.
    Firms with both a High Street and online presence, such as John Lewis, did best, the survey said.
    For every pound spent on goods in 2007, 15 pence was spent online, pushing annual electronic sales to £30.2bn.
    In 2006, for every pound spent on retail goods, the internet spend had been 10 pence.

    No surprise really. Most goods available on the High St are also easy enough to buy online. Prices are often better online. And of course no need to join long queues either. :)
