Mothercare’s international arm continued to outperform its UK business, with like-for-like sales down 4.3 per cent at home.

Ian Peacock, chairman of Mothercare commented that the domestic market remained "difficult and competitive."

On the group's UK retail strategy, he said: "Our property restructure and cost reduction programme are progressing well.

"As announced in May, we are targeting a more profitable portfolio of circa 266 UK stores by March 2013. The new store format trials have been well received by customers."
