JD Sports Fashion today shrugged off the disruption caused by the snow in December as it revealed another better-than-expected trading performance and an uplift in profits.

The sports and fashion retailer said like-for-like sales at its UK stores, which include 350 JD Sports and Size? outlets, were up 2.5% in the last five weeks of 2010.
