    Charles Duncombe says an analysis of website figures shows a single spelling mistake can cut online sales in half.

    Mr Duncombe says when recruiting staff he has been "shocked at the poor quality of written English".

    Sales figures suggest misspellings put off consumers who could have concerns about a website's credibility, he says.

    The concerns were echoed by the Confederation of British Industry (CBI), whose head of education and skills warned that too many employers were having to invest in remedial literacy lessons for their staff.
