Is the high street dead?

I reported live for the BBC Radio Derby breakfast show on the phone in topic, is the high street dead? I went to Long Eaton, between Derby and Nottingham, and staged managed this live. I lined up the first interview with the owner of a newsagent who partly blames charity shops for the death of the high street and then walked across the road into a charity shop to put that accusation to the shop's manager.

  1. Very sad and worrying for the life of a town. Long Eaton town centre used to be buzzing with life when I lived in Risley 30 years ago.
    I agree with the newsagent that the council has a big responsibility in this area. Bring back the food shops as well.
