There are job fears in Cornwall as a jeans store goes into administration.

Scottish firm D2 has shops in Truro, Penzance and Newquay.

Administrators are trying to find a buyer for those and 25 others across the UK.

19 have already closed, with the loss of around 200 posts.

BDO spokesman James Stephen says, "It is unfortunate that the economic climate and extremely difficult trading conditions have significantly affected the retail sector. However, we are hopeful of securing a sale of all or part of the company, and will continue to trade the business whilst this is explored".
