    Unwanted gifts spoil Tesco's Christmas

    Tesco's (TSCO.L) Christmas trading missed forecasts as strong food sales were offset by weak demand for items such as DVDs and computer games, showing that even Britain's biggest supermarket chain is feeling the strain as consumers curb their spending. Market research this week had identified Tesco as a festive winner, but the group said lower sales of general merchandise and the collapse of a tobacco supplier cast a shadow over a record week of trading before Dec. 25. Britons, whose spending power has been squeezed by inflation, prioritised food this Christmas and cut back on nearly everything else, industry data has shown.

    European shares at fresh highs on earning optimism, dealmaking

    MILAN/LONDON (Reuters) - European shares rose for a fourth straight session on Tuesday, lifted by strength among cyclical stocks and optimism about further growth in company earnings.

    LONDON, Dec (Shanghai: 600875.SS - news) 22 (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Snowy penguin Christmas cards sold by a major British retailer came under scrutiny on Friday after one shopper found a handwritten note ostensibly from a Chinese prisoner inside.
