UK web shopping has seen a 22% rise last month in comparison to last year's numbers despite a 9% decrease in May, according to the IMRG Capgemini e-Retail Sales Index.

This is the highest monthly growth registered by the Index in two years, with shopping totalling £4.4bn growth across all sectors.

Clothing retailers were the best performers with a year-on-year increase of 73%, followed by lingerie sales which jumped 23% and footwear, which saw a 23% boost in relation to last year's numbers.

"The combination of the World Cup, Wimbledon and the high temperatures resulted in a record June for online shopping. Despite turbulent times June has seen the second consecutive month of year-on-year growth above the 20% mark," said vice-president and head of retail consulting and technology at Capgemini, Chris Webster

"Consumers are more savvy than ever and continue to look towards online shopping to find the best deals that the high street and the internet can offer," said Webster.
