A 35-year-old Devon sportswear and equipment firm has ceased trading.

Harbour Sports closed its shops in Exeter, Plymouth and Paignton, blaming "a combination of adverse factors".

It said the Plymouth and Exeter shops had closed permanently, but the Paignton branch would "re-open with some changes in the future".

Newton Abbott-based MB Insolvency confirmed that it had been charged with putting the company into voluntary liquidation.

Harbour Sports was founded in Paignton in the the 1970s by Julian Smith and Frank Sobey and their wives Sue and Lyndy.

In a statement, they thanked their customers and "particularly our staff for all their support and hard work".
