Families had around £11 less a year to spend on non-essential items in November, as budgets remained under pressure in the run-up to Christmas, a study has found.

Lloyds TSB said its latest figures continue a period of relatively weak income growth as wages struggle to keep pace with rising living costs and households remain a long way away from "getting back to normal".
