The Inverness branch of high street photographic chain Jessops has closed.

The news was confirmed today by a company spokeswoman though the reason for the closure is not yet known.

The chain was originally founded as a specialist photographic retailer by Frank Jessop in 1935.

It went into administration in January 2013 with the loss of 1370 jobs and the closure of 187 stores.

By the end of that month, however, the brand and various assets was acquired by Dragons' Den entrepreneur Peter Jones, with six stores quickly reopening in London, Birmingham, Manchester, Aberdeen, High Wycombe and St Albans.

By November 2016 there were a total of 52 Jessops branches across the UK.
