Shoppers indulge in UK's Boxing Day

Britain's biggest shopping day provides a much needed boost to retailers reeling from sagging economy.

    Boxing Day bargain hunters are descending on Britain's high streets in their millions.

    The biggest shopping day of the year is providing a much needed boost to retailers suffering from a sagging economy.  

    Meanwhile, online consumers have reportedly spent an estimated $1.6b in just three days during the Christmas holiday, with sales up more than 30 percent.
