UK shopper numbers fall for second straight week on new COVID curbs

LONDON, Oct 5 (Reuters) - Shopper numbers across all British retail destinations fell for a second consecutive week, dented by the government’s new curbs to stem the spread of COVID-19 as well as wet weather, market researcher Springboard said on Monday.

It said shopper numbers, or footfall, fell 3.5% last week versus the week before, largely driven by a 7.1% drop in high street traffic.
