FTSE LIVE: British stocks remain in a downward spiral; Dixons Carphone tracks forecasts for the entire year; Bovis Homes becomes the newest home builder to raise money for Help to Buy despite the market slowdown

Dixon's Carphone stated today that the group's like-for-like sales were the same in the first quarter, as it continued to hold on to the full-year forecasts. In the United Kingdom, where total sales fell by 2 percent, the retailer was held back by the slower sales of computers and white goods, despite having enjoyed a World Cup-related impulse.

Bovis Homes has become the newest home builder to remove uncertainty in the property market this week by setting a sharp increase in the half-year profit.
