Papa Johns have revealed they are set to close 43 of their restaurants in yet another blow to the high-street.

The pizza giant have announced they will be shutting almost a tenth of their sites, all of which have been 'underperforming'. The chain currently own 450 stores across the UK, with locations in Doncaster, Wimbledon, Southport and Watford set to close. It is currently unclear how many jobs are at risk.

Papa Johns are the latest business to announce store closures. This news comes after Ted Baker fell into administration last week, while The Body Shop, Wilko and Next all revealed they were closing selected shops in the past year.

Mr Phylactou added: "While this is a difficult decision, closing these underperforming locations will give us the opportunity to invest back into the right locations with the right partners for long-term growth.

"We are focused on driving shared profitable growth across our UK restaurants, by continuing to make improvements to our business to ensure that we are well positioned for the future.

"We have been encouraged by the results so far from these initiatives."
