A spokesman confirmed that the shops in Marsh Road, Luton, West Street, Dunstable, and Waterborne Walk, Leighton Buzzard had survived the latest re-structuring since Blockbuster went into administration last month.

The company had 528 locations across the country before appointing administrators Deloitte in January – that total now stands at 204.

Lee Manning of Deloitte said: “We have continued to review the performance of individual stores since our appointment a month ago and have concluded that further closures are necessary in order to restructure the company for sale.”
