TalkTalk has reported pre-tax profits of £32 million for the year to the end of March, a 3.2% rise on the previous year.

Post-tax profits rose to £72m as a result of tax credits on the previous year's losses.

The mobile & broadband provider said revenues were up 3.9% to £1.8bn. And TalkTalk raised its revenue forecast for 2017 to 5%.

TalkTalk chief executive Dido Harding said: "Beyond [full year 2017] we expect to continue to grow revenues by at least 5% per annum."
