Hundreds of jobs are at risk across the Midlands as BHS has confirmed it is going into administration.
It comes less than a month after the struggling retailer was granted a lifeline by creditors who agreed a plan to reduce the rent on some of its high street stores.
BHS owner, Dominic Chappell, insisted no one was to blame:
"No one is to blame. It was a combination of bad trading and not being able to raise enough money from the property portfolio.
"In the end, we just couldn't reach an agreement with Arcadia over pensions."
The beleaguered high street chain will file for administration today, threatening almost 11,000 jobs.
