An MP is calling on high street giant Marks and Spencer to invest in stores - not close them down.
Huddersfield's M and S is one of three stores under threat of closure with the possible loss of 150 jobs.
The firm say they want to retain as many jobs as possible as they reshape their store estate as more customers choose to shop online.

Among the 17 branches announced to go last week five are across Yorkshire and Lincolnshire.
It is all part of an accelerated closure programme which will see over 100 stores shut nationwide affecting more than 1,000 job.
