In a note to clients, Deutsche Bank’s analysts pointed out that they visited 17 Intu shopping centre in 6 days, driving 1,500 miles.

They said: “We have travelled the length and breadth of the UK to visit Intu's English, Scottish and Welsh assets and answer the all-important question - Does Intu have a portfolio tail of weaker assets?

They concluded that while Intu’s management thinks otherwise, they are not convinced and consequently have cut their target and downgraded their rating for the stock.
