This week marks the 15th anniversary of Sunday trading laws being relaxed in England and Wales.
On Sunday 28 August the country's leading high street shops opened legally when the Sunday Trading Act 1994 came into force.
The new law permitted large shops to open for six hours on Sundays and small ones to open for as long as they wanted.
The new law faced opposition from various groups, including the Keep Sunday Special Campaign.
