US retail sales saw their biggest rise for more than a year in April, largely because of a surge in car sales.

Overall retail sales grew by 1.3% last month compared with March, according to the US Commerce Department - the strongest gain since March 2015.

Car sales climbed by 3.2%, a sharp reversal from the 3.2% fall recorded in the previous month.

March's total retail sales were better than previously reported, falling by 0.3% not 0.4%.
