"Bill Grimsey, the former chief executive of Wickes and Iceland, will release the report on Wednesday and say that Britain’s high streets are in a 'deep decline' and there is an 'arms race for new ideas'. However he says that there is a 'frustrating sense of policy being conducted in the margins'.

"Mr Grimsey will say that previous initiatives such as Mary Portas’s government-backed review into the high street were too 'nostalgic' and failed to grasp the extent to which the internet has changed shopping patterns."

Independent on Sunday

"The high street of the future
is like nothing we know"
