I was interviewed by the lovely Mary Portas today on the plight of the UK high street. Apparently its being broadcast on ITV from 6.30 today in the South East area


Retail expert Mary Portas has been recruited by the government to reinvigorate high streets across Britain.

TV's so-called 'Queen of Shops' says action is needed to end the decline of high street shopping after town centre vacancy rates doubled over the past two years.

She said: "I am calling on businesses, local authorities and shoppers to contribute their ideas on how we can halt this decline in its tracks and create town centres that we can all be proud of."
