It has been a year since Mary Portas, the Queen of Shops, led a review of England's struggling high streets.

Twelve so-called "Portas Pilot" towns were given a share of just over £1m to try to reverse the decline.

Professor Isabelle Szmigin, Consumer Behaviourist from University of Birmingham and Saira Khan, a businesswoman and former Apprentice contestant, joined BBC Breakfast to debate what could be done to help save the UK high street.
