BARNSLEY'S HMV store is to close in the next two months.

It's been announced that the troubled firm's administrators, Deloitte, have earmarked 66 stores across the country to close - and Barnsley's been named as one of those.

Deloitte said no fixed date had been set for the closure of the 66 identified stores, which would continue to trade in the meantime.

"This step has been taken in order to enhance the prospects of securing the future of HMV," said Nick Edwards, joint administrator at Deloitte.
