Llandudno high street on list of those 'struggling to survive' in report that has been slammed
The Retail Resilience Index was not good reading for the seaside resort - but has been attacked locally.

The Report is ridiculous - I suspect Llandudno is one of the most thriving towns, as far as levels of empty shops go.

It's a complicated bit of research, which uses a number of variables and I suspect their rather odd technique of placing their findings as a simple 'top 10 - bottom 10' at the outset was not only a case of oversimplification but also failed to reflect the complexity of the measures they'd used.

I agree with you both, for such a seemingly extensive report, to end up with ranking Llandudno so low in their rankings is ridiculous.

The Grimsey Review was mentioned in their report, I had a quick look, very interesting reading......

" I spent
my entire career professing that,
“there are never any problems only
opportunities” and that is true for our
country. Our towns and high streets
can become the driving force behind
a real economic recovery,
we just need the political will
and determination to take
meaningful action.
Bill Grimsey"

Lots of activity early this morning, sirens and helicopters, various FB rumors, BBC has this.....

Llandudno angler airlifted after falling into sea.
An angler has been airlifted to hospital after falling into the sea while fishing from rocks at Llandudno's Great Orme headland.

A second person who went into the sea to help the angler was treated by paramedics for being "extremely cold".

Llandudno RNLI and HM Coastguard received the callout off Pigeons Cave, Pen Trwyn, at 07:36 BST.

RNLI volunteers took the angler to shore for the airlift before returning to rescue the second person from rocks.

Sad news following the above....
A man has died this morning (Sunday) after falling into the sea in Llandudno.
