Staff at a top independent electrical retailer have been told jobs will have to go but would not say how many.

Norfolk-based firm Bennetts, that employed about 300 staff in 14 stores across the country, has collapsed and called in administrators PKF.

Customers have also been told they may have to wait weeks for any goods they have purchased for delivery.

Administrators must examine all aspects of the retailer's business before deciding its future, a spokesman said.

The firm has major stores in Colchester, Norwich, Martlesham Heath in Suffolk, Bangor and Farnham.
