Jessops customer stuck with £500 voucher

A man was left with an unusable £500 Jessops voucher after making a failed last-minute attempt to spend it before the camera chain closed down today.

Sergio Tallon, who was given the voucher by his girlfriend, told ITV News he had been "running around London" trying to find a store that was open.

He narrowly missed out on being able to spend the voucher after shops closed early following the firm's administration.
