More than 60 HMV stores have already been earmarked for closure across the country and now Grimsby is part of an additional 37 stores to be shutting their doors for good.

"This step has been taken in order to enhance the prospects of the restructured business continuing as a going concern.
"Together with the previously identified 66 closures, this restructuring will result in a residual portfolio of some 116 stores."
The 37 affected stores employ 464 staff.
