A rise in the number of people on Jersey's high streets has been reported by the island's Chamber of Commerce.

David Warr, president of the Jersey Chamber of Commerce, said footfall figures for the first quarter of 2013 were 6% higher than in 2012.

He said while more people were passing by shops in St Helier, the increase had not yet been reflecting in spending.

Mr Warr said some businesses were worried about trade, especially in the wake of recent bad weather.
