Debenhams have announced a number of their stores are under threat of closure.

No announcement has been made as yet as to which sites could go but Southport is understood to be high on a list of locations to be reviewed.

The closures are part of a strategy to reinvent the business and turnaround profit.

OTS News has approached the Lord Street store for a comment.
