Clare Boardman, joint administrator, told Insider: "Whilst we remain hopefully that a sale for part of the business can still happen, it has not been possible to sell the business as a whole, resulting in today’s announcement.
"We would like to thank all the employees for their continued support and commitment during this difficult time. We are keeping staff appraised of developments as they happen."
