Up your street! Traffic boost for shops

    The traffic-free day

    IT’S Oxford Street as you’ve never seen it before.
    The West End’s shopping mecca was transformed into a mass retail party on Saturday as cars and buses were expelled for the day. It was all in aid of a VIP (Very Important Pedestrian) day, organised by the New West End Company, which saw more than two million people get the Christmas shopping season under way. More than £200million went through the tills on what some retailers called the best day’s trading in two years.
