Morrisons has announced that chief executive Dalton Philips is to step down after five years at the helm of the struggling supermarket business.

The move was announced as the Bradford-based chain reported that like-for-like sales fell 3.1% in the six weeks to January 4.

Andrew Higginson, who is due to become chairman later this month, said the company’s board believed the push to return the business to growth was “best done under new leadership”.
