Report: HMV boss axed amid a further 60 redundancies

Music and video retailer HMV has made its chief executive Trevor Moore redundant among 60 staff that have been let go by administrators Deloitte, according to Reuters.

The news agency reports the job losses are to come from HMV's head office network in London, Marlow and Solihull.

Yesterday, the firm announced that 66 of its 220 shops are to close over the next two months, impacting 930 staff.

Mr Moore's reported exit comes weeks after he said he was "convinced" the future of the chain could be secured.

On the day HMV went into administration, he said bosses remained "passionate" about the retailer and would "like to be involved in the business going forward if the opportunity presented itself".

Talks are continuing between Deloitte and restructuring firm Hilco, which bought the company's debt.
