Link to web site

"The former boss of Tesco has described the rise of supermarkets and closure of small shops as 'part of progress'.

"Speaking on BBC Radio 4's Desert Island Discs, Sir Terry Leahy also called some High Streets 'medieval', saying the way people lived their lives had changed.

"Sir Terry said seeing boarded up local shops was sad, but this happened because consumers were choosing to shop at the bigger supermarkets.

"The benefits of out-of-town stores outweighed the downsides, he added."
