Fashion jobs blow

UP to 1,600 jobs in Ireland and Britain could be at risk after women's fashion company Jane Norman was placed into administration.

The firm has 16 shops in Ireland, including outlets in Debenhams.

Accountancy firm Zolfo Cooper is trying to find a buyer for the retailer, which closed its 90 stores on Saturday. Reports have suggested Debenhams and Edinburgh Woollen Mill are among the potential bidders.
