Local shops frustrated by Westfield

It's claimed some local shops have seen a 90% drop in trade as a result of Westfield Stratford opening.

Newham Council says since Westfield opened it has employed more than 2,000 residents and a new pedestrian town centre route is being built to link it with Stratford town centre.
