Staff at Ethel Austin in Morecambe were given half an hour to clear their belongings before the shop closed for good on Friday.

It was the final nail in the coffin for the troubled clothing chain whose Lancaster store closed last year.

Owner Ricli Limited called in administrators and its stores, numbering around 30 nationally, were closed.

Ethel Austin had been in administration five times in four years.
