Chesterfield could be rocked by the loss of another high street brand after it was announced Blockbuster is about to enter administration.

The DVD rental looks set to follow Jessops and HMV into administration, with the potential loss of over 4,000 jobs.

Blockbuster has two stores in Chesterfield, one on Derby Road and another on Newbold Road in the town centre.

Deloitte have been appointed as administrators.
