None of Lincolnshire's nine Blockbuster stores have been listed in the first round of closures of the game and film rental chain.

There are Blockbuster outlets across Lincolnshire in Sleaford, Grantham, Bourne, Stamford, Wisbech, Scunthorpe, Grimsby and two in Lincoln with another nearby in Newark.

So far 160 stores have been marked for closure across the UK.

Administrators Deloitte were called in on January 15 putting over 4,000 jobs at risk at around 500 stores nationwide.

Stores that have escaped the initial closures will continue to trade as normal while a buyer is sought for the business.

The UK business suffered a plunge in profits and the company had a deficit of £11.2m in 2012.
