'People's mental health may deteriorate' after garden destroyed

A community garden scheme, which has been recognised as one of the country's finest green spaces for three years running, has been severely damaged from an arson attack.

A Place to Grow in Enderby was attacked by vandals on Saturday afternoon.

The fire left the two large sheds, one of which was purchased and built by the local community, completely gutted.

Sales up 3.9% for Next

The growth has come from the Next Directory sector of the business Credit: PA

Retailing giant Next have seen a large growth in the Next Directory sector of their business pushing their growth across the year ending in January to 3.9%.

Although this is largely in line with expectations cost control has seen the company increase its profit estimates to £618 million.

Despite the progress, Simon Wolfson, Chief Executive, warned trading conditions were likely to remain difficult this year as wage growth continues to lag behind inflation.

Next Retail's headquarters are in Enderby in Leicester.
