DIY retailer Homebase has not listed its branches in Leamington and Warwick among those which will be closed as part of a major restructuring of the company.

Homebase has announced it will close 42 of its 241 stores over the next 16 months, putting up to 1,500 jobs at risk.

A total of 17 Homebase stores have already shut this year, while 303 jobs at its head office in Milton Keynes have been cut.

Restructuring company Hilco, which bought the DIY chain for £1 in May, confirmed it was planning a Company Voluntary Arrangement (CVA).

It bought the struggling chain from Australia's Wesfarmers after its disastrous foray into the UK market.

A CVA is a controversial insolvency procedure used by struggling firms to close underperforming shops.

CVAs have been adopted by a number of retailers including New Look, Carpetright and Mothercare in recent months.
