Around 2,200 staff at JJB Sports have been made redundant after administrators closed 133 stores and agreed to sell 20 remaining outlets to Mike Ashley's Sports Direct International.


The Sports World parent bought the stores, the brand and its website for £23.8 million in a deal that will protect 550 jobs in the UK, including its warehouse.
