I've been working in Leeds today and have been really taken aback by the empty offices, closed shops and deserted streets in an area which has only been relatively recently re-developed. Sad to see. Here's hoping that within the next few years the offices are staffed, the bars and cafes are re-opened and the streets are bustling. Then we will know that recession is over. At the moment it's a very painful reminder of the struggle businesses are facing. Sad to see.
