More than 100 jobs have been lost across Sussex as a chain of book stores closed their doors for the last time.

Failed book chain British Bookshops and Stationers has closed its branches in Burgess Hill, Crawley, East Grinstead and Haywards Heath.

The Worthing branch in Montague Street closed yesterday and the store in West Street in Horsham will shut on Saturday.

The administrator confirmed that 37 people have been made redundant from the firm's head office and 45 from the warehouse.

Last month 22 British Bookshops & Stationers stores in Sussex were sold to WHSmith for £1.05 million.

WHSmith said these stores would continue to trade under their own name for the time being.
