Twenty jobs have been lost at a Wiltshire fashion firm which has gone into liquidation owing almost £470,000.

The family-run business Spirit, based in Devizes, began trading in 1999.

Chartered accountancy firm Mazars, appointed liquidators, said at its peak the firm had a £1m turnover but had been unable to beat the recession.

Stores in Marlborough and Frome, Somerset, already have new tenants but the Bradford-on-Avon store is not expected to re-open.

The remaining outlet in Devizes and the company's assets are expected to be sold to an "interested party - shortly", a spokesman for Mazars said.
