Kitchen and bedroom furniture retailer Betta Living has collapsed into administration in a move threatening around 300 posts, it has been confirmed.

Dean House Limited, which trades as Betta Living, appointed FRP Advisory as administrators after struggling with the costs of rapid expansion in recent years.

FRP said Betta Living - headquartered in Oldham, Greater Manchester - closed all of its 24 stores nationwide and sent staff home on Friday as it prepared to appoint administrators.

FRP is now looking at options to sell the group for ongoing trading. It has no stores in Northern Ireland

Anthony Collier, joint administrator and partner at FRP Advisory, said it was working to find a way of rescuing the business.
