Edinburgh Woollen Mill collapse puts jobs at risk

Edinburgh Woollen Mill and Ponden Home have been placed into administration, putting thousands of jobs at risk.

The clothing retailer had 328 sites and 2,571 staff across the UK, while homeware store Ponden had 329 staff.

Today 866 jobs were lost across the two chains adding to the hundreds that went after 64 stores across the two brands were permanently closed.

EWM Group owns both chains but is still trying to strike a rescue deal to save remaining brands, Peacocks and Jaeger.
