Marks & Spencer has declined to comment on reports that Kate Bostock, its executive director of general merchandise, is set to leave the company.

According to The Financial Times, sources familiar with the situation claim Bostock's resignation could be announced at the company's annual meeting on 10 July.

When contacted by just-style, M&S declined to comment on the reports. A spokesperson for the company said: "Kate is very much still here."

Last year, M&S played down stories Bostock was in talks with online retailer Asos or New Look. At the same time, chief executive Marc Bolland said he was not interested in discussing the rumours.
