JOBS in Hampshire could be under threat after a camera retailer chain went into administration today.

Around 2,000 jobs at Jessops are said to be under threat.

The group has stores in Winchester, Hedge End, Southampton and Fareham.

PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) has been appointed to the group, which is Britain's only specialist nationwide camera retailer, with nearly 200 stores.

Jessops, which has its headquarters in Leicester, has suffered in recent years from online competition and the boom in camera phones, which has hit demand for digital cameras.
