WARRINGTON has seen one of the UK's largest increases in footfall since non-essential shops reopened.

According to data from Centre for Cities, Warrington has seen a faster recovery in footfall over the course of June, unlike cities such as Manchester and London.

Large towns and smaller cities are generally having faster recoveries due to the concentration of shops and jobs in a single city centre, whereas large cities have multiple neighbourhoods spread across the city-region.

Despite not being a city itself, Warrington is included in the data because of its large population.

After Warrington, the English cities and large towns with the most footfall include Hull, Telford, Bournemouth and Sunderland.

Those that have seen the smallest increase in high street footfall include London, Sheffield, Manchester, Nottingham and York.
