Blockbuster UK has confirmed it will close 72 stores across Britain, at the cost of 452 jobs.

The BBC reports that Blockbuster’s administrators Moorfields Corporate Recovery, said the move was not an, “easy decision to make”.

It follows the troubled movie chain going into administration a second time back in October. Moorfields added in a statement, “We must reiterate that, as part of our attempts to turn around the business, today’s decision is necessary if parts of Blockbuster are to be saved and a buyer found.”

The news comes after Blockbuster US said it will close 300 stores across North America.
