More than 300 staff have been made redundant at stricken electricals retail chain Comet.
Its administrator Deloitte announced 330 job losses across Comet's head office and support centres, but stressed there had been no redundancies among shop staff and all Comet's 236 stores remain open.
The bulk of the staff cuts have been made in Comet's head office in Rickmansworth, Herts, as well as its site in Hull and call centre in Clevedon, Somerset.
Deloitte added that it was holding talks with a number of potential buyers for Comet, which collapsed into administration a week ago.
The large distribution hub in Harlow in Essex has become the biggest Comet site so far to close, with 172 people losing jobs.
Around 6,500 retail jobs are under threat as electricals chain Comet became the latest casualty on the high street.
