House of Fraser stores owned by Intu have been saved form closure following talks with the store’s owner, Mike Ashley’s Sports Direct.

An “interim agreement” has been reached which will keep the stores in Chapelfield in Norwich, Lakeside in Thurrock, Metrocentre in Gateshead and Victoria Centre in Nottingham open.

All four locations had previously been earmarked for closure by Sports Direct which bought the department store chain after it went into administration.
