It’s hard to spend a penny on the high street | Shops and shopping


You report that high-street footfall is still down on pre-Covid levels (How Britain’s high streets are recovering after lockdown – visual analysis, 31 August). Surely one of the reasons must be the disappearance of public WCs?

I have had no change in diagnosis over the period, but I did have Covid in March.
