The heating and plumbing giant said the huge pre-tax loss for the year to 31 July is the result of more than £1bn in write-downs and restructuring costs.

The company has closed around 650 branches this year, with the loss of more than 10,000 jobs, and signalled there are more job losses to come at its Build Centers and Plumb Centers in the UK.

Wolseley reported profits of almost £400m last year but the slowdown in construction has had a 'harsh impact' on trading this year.
