Commiserations

The town of Holyhead, in the Welsh county of Anglesey, is one of the Britain's busiest ferry ports, handling more than 2m passengers each year. The small town also has the highest proportion of empty shop space in the country.

According to major new research by Experian, the data company, 39pc of retail space in Holyhead town centre will be empty by the end of next month – equivalent to four shops in every 10. This chilling figure is up from 27pc in December, providing a bleak illustration of just how rapidly Holyhead's shopkeepers are being forced out of business by the downturn in consumer spending.

However, there are large docks at Holyhead who are one of the preferred suppliers to the British Navy (Along with Babcock Marine in Rosyth), so it's not all bad news. Maybe one of the patrol boats will get torpedoed trying to stop Hamas smugglers, and be dragged back for repairs.

Fingers crossed, eh?

I live in a little village and since the summer, five shops have become empty and one of the pubs have closed down .

They only just open a big shopping centre in bangor in the autumn of 2007 and there has been hardly any takers, and more more shops are lying empty.

Many of my friends who work in different industries have been made redundant and there is just no jobs going at all, so nearly all of them are going to have to move.

It has shocked me at how fast and aggressive the reccession has unfolded!
