The closures are part of wider measures designed to revive the group's fortunes in the wake of a disastrous 2014.

The decision to close the stores has been exceptionally difficult to take. I recognise it will affect many hard-working colleagues, our customers and local communities. Our priority is to explain what this announcement means for our colleagues and, wherever possible, offer them alternative roles with Tesco.

– Dave Lewis, Tesco Chief Executive
