Toys R Us has gone into administration, putting 3,000 UK occupations at risk.

Administrators have been appointed to begin “an orderly wind-down” of the UK’s biggest plaything retailer following the failure to find a buyer.

They said that all 105 Toys R Us stores will remain open until further notification.

Joint administrator Simon Thomas said: “Whilst this process is likely to affect many Toys R Us personnel, whether some or all of the storages will close remains to be decided.”
