1.59 PM this afternoon is set to be the busiest and the most stressful time on London's high streets as people rush to get their shopping done before Christmas, according to new research.

The research, which polled the views of 2,000 British consumers, also revealed that over a quarter of Londoners will suffer from bouts of 'pavement rage' this Christmas as a result of over-crowded streets.
