The number of people visiting our high streets and shopping centres has fallen for the second month in a row.
Overall, retail footfall in October was 0.4% lower compared to the same time a year ago, but it was still better than September's fall of 0.9%.
This is according to the latest BRC-Springboard Footfall and Vacancies Monitor, which found that customer traffic in shopping centres fell for the ninth consecutive month.
Despite this, the 1.8% drop signalled an improvement on September's 2.5% drop.
To discuss the findings in more detail, Simon Rose spoke to Diane Wehrle, Marketing and Insights Director at Springboard
