Cyber Monday clicks leave Black Friday in bits

Retailers are certain that Cyber Monday will prove a bigger hit than its cousin Black Friday.

Shopping trends now show that more and more people prefer to trawl the Internet for bargains than visit a store.

Cyber Monday is when Black Friday goes online.

Online is 24/7 and over the four-day period from Black Friday to Cyber Monday retailers are expecting a £3bn bonanza in the UK alone.

Amazon UK reported record figures on Black Friday, selling more than 7.4 million items at a rate of around 86 items per second with not a queue or fight in sight.
