Veteran retailer Lord Harris of Peckham has unveiled plans to give up the day-to-day running of the Carpetright business he founded 25 years ago.

The Tory peer, who has been in the carpet trade for more than 50 years, will relinquish the role of chief executive but remain as non-executive chairman following a handover period to new boss Darren Shapland.
