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. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
