Retail sales fell last month as consumers remain cautious about spending. 

Sales fell by 0.1% between September and October, according to the Office of National Statistics, below analysts forecast of 0.2% growth. Sales were down across all retail sectors apart from food stores.

The fall in sales represented the weakest monthly figure since April last year.
