Figures published by Springboard today show that between Monday 2 to Sunday 8 December high street footfall dipped by 0.8 per cent.

Visitors to retail parks fell by 9.9 per cent and by 3.8 per cent at shopping centres. The fall came in spite of the rise across all locations when including Sunday 1 December.
