HMV, the music and DVD retailer employing about 4,350 staff, has become the latest casualty on the High Street after appointing an administrator.
Deloitte was appointed to run the 239-store chain following a meeting of the HMV board on Monday evening, the BBC understands.
A formal announcement is expected later.
