Shoppers fill high streets in England on first Saturday since lockdown lifted

London Mayor Sadiq Khan visits a busy Regent Street on the first Saturday since the second national lockdown in England was lifted. He said: “It’s quite clear speaking to shopkeepers, businesses and those in retail, they’ve had a horrendous nine months, they’re keen to make sure this golden month and this golden quarter they can make up some of the ground lost. “They’ve seen the collapse of international tourism, the collapse of domestic tourism, and that’s why they really need our support. “Unless we support our shops we can’t be surprised if, due to a combination of Covid and lack of business, shops close and people lose their jobs.”
