Marks & Spencer shares fell on Friday after analysts said they expected third quarter sales to fall back on a weak general merchandise performance.

With less than a week until its quarter sales update on Thursday, Marks & Spencer shares fell 11.4 p at 377p on Friday after analysts at Nomura cut their full year forecasts from £694 million to £666 million.

According to the Guardian the bank expects the update from the department store to show UK like-for-like sales down 1.4 per cent, attributed to a weakness in its general merchandise offering.
