The future of the high street

For anyone who missed it, I was back on BBC Radio London this morning his time discussing the collapse of the British high street.

Standing in for Vanessa was the lovely Jeni Barnett, with whom I have a good old tussle about the problems faced by the floundering town centre.

A bit of background, experts predict 60,000 high street shops - around one in five - will close in the next five years.

People are getting fed up of the lack of parking, poor choice and high costs and turning more and more to online shopping.

The result - our high streets are becoming ghost towns.

Here's the interview - as always, you'll have to nudge in to around the two-hour mark to hear it.
