 Marks & Spencer is closing a further 100 stores as part of a restructuring plan.

Marks & Spencer has dealt a fresh blow to the high street as it announced another wave of store closures, putting more than 1,000 jobs at risk.

The struggling high street giant is shutting 100 of its stores by 2022 and on Tuesday revealed the locations of the next 17 branches to close in coming months.

Sacha Berendji, the M&S retail, operations and property director, said: “Proposing to close stores is never easy, for our colleagues, customers or the local community, but it is vital for the future of M&S.”
