A group of independent shopkeepers have launched an online shopping fightback with a virtual high street designed to hang on to local customers.

The myhigh.st site opened with 50 shops from Wells and Castle Cary, Somerset, and will continue across the UK as soon as individual high streets can gather a minimum of 10 shopkeepers to participate.
