ITV’s Tonight programme has visited a street in Connah’s Quay,where a couple have discovered virtually none of their neighbours know each other, despite some having lived there for years.

In the programme, to be shown on ITV on Thursday at 7.30 pm, it is revealed that a specially-commissioned survey, from OnePoll, has found out of 2,000 questioned, 42 per cent said they know fewer than five people on their street.

In addition, almost a quarter said they hadn’t spoken to their neighbours in over a month and one in five said they wouldn’t recognise their neighbours in a supermarket.

Does this surprise you? Why do you think this trend has developed?
