'Market conditions have meant these businesses have struggled to make a sustained positive contribution, despite significant investment'

East of England Co-operative has announced the sale of its opticians and pharmacies.

The NPA says government funding cuts and inflated wholesale prices for medicines have put a squeeze on the industry.
