Footfall across the UK continued to fall in August as experts warn an “urgent effort is required from policymakers” to stem the decline. According to new data from the British Retail Consortium (BRC) and Springboard, overall footfall fell 1.2 per cent compared to the same period last year, over three times the average quarterly decline and over four times the average 12-month drop. High streets saw the most significant drop in shopper numbers falling 2.6 per cent, a steeper decline than July’s 2.1 per cent.
