Synopsis >

25 million pounds is today's daily digit - the cost of British rain to Europe's largest DIY retailer. Kingfisher runs B&Q in the UK and trades as Brico Depot and Castarama in France. It said poor British weather last summer and a cold start to this year hit demand. Cash-strapped customers are also cutting back on home improvements in the economic downturn. Big ticket items like kitchens and bathrooms were particularly badly hit.
