Midlands camera chain Jessops is back after Dragons' Den entrepreneur, Peter Jones, decided he was going to make them an offer.

It cost him £4 million for 100% of the company.

The group was founded in Leicester in 1935 and had almost 200 stores before they all closed in January 2013 with 1,500 people losing their jobs.
