LANCING has a higher rate of charity shops, vacant shops and bookmakers than in the rest of Adur, according to council figures.

The statistics reveal that of the 167 shops in the village, nine are currently empty, a rate of 5.39 per cent, compared with seven in Shoreham, or 3.43 per cent of its 204 shops.

The figures for betting shops, often a sign of a struggling high street, paint a similar picture.
