The Bullring was built at a cost of more than 500m
A record number of shoppers visited Birmingham's Bullring shopping centre over the festive period.

More than 1.1m people went there between 18 December and Christmas Eve.

General manager Tim Walley said: "It's been well reported that retailing has had a very tough year but Bullring has continued to buck the trend."

The figures compare to 1.01m shoppers in the same period last year. The 500m Bullring, which includes the landmark Selfridges building, opened in 2003.
