VIP Christmas shopping day on Oxford St to be scrapped

An annual car-free day for shoppers on Oxford Street is set to be scrapped this year.

The street has been pedestrianised for one day each December for the last 7 years.

The New West End Company - which represents the area's retailers - says it's putting all of its energy into the Christmas lights switch-on instead.
