SHOPPERS splurged £12.1bn online last month thanks to the sales frenzy surrounding Black Friday weekend, marking a record spike in November sales.

E-tail industry body IMRG and advisory firm Capgemini said online sales increased by 37 per cent on the previous month – the biggest October-November rise in the 14-year history of its index.

Electricals, up 71 per cent, and health and beauty, up 99 per cent, were among the best performers.
