Nationally, Britons were expected to spend £200m less in the post-Christmas sales this year as environmental concerns drive down buying.

Some four in 10 UK adults were set to make the most of sales from Boxing Day, spending an average of £186 each and a total of £3.7bn, according to Barclaycard.

However, due to concerns about the environment, 62 per cent intend to make fewer purchases.
