Movie rental chain Xtravision is to close eleven stores in the North - but the two stores in Derry are to remain open.

Around 60 jobs are to go with the closure of the stores. A further nine stores in the Republic are also to close.

Xtravision shops in Strabane and Limavady are also to stay open.

The chain went into receivership last week.

Luke Charleton of receivers Ernst and Young says there has been a number of expressions of interest in the chain.

He says the stores not earmarked for closure will continue to trade as normal.
