Tesco has been dealt a further blow with the loss of another senior executive.

Julia Reynolds, director of Tesco's central European clothing business, becomes the latest senior executive to leave the retailer.

She is to take on the role of chief executive at lingerie retailer Figleaves.

Earlier this month, Dido Harding, a rising star at Tesco, defected to Sainsbury's to head up its convenience division.

Tesco Direct CEO Steve Robinson also left the retailer last month, while in June this year operations and IT development director John Browett left Tesco to become the new group chief executive of electronics giant DSG International.
