Blimey.
In amongst all this, I missed the news that Mothercare sold the Early Learning Centre to The Entertainer earier this year - which is good because their own brand toys are generally pretty good. I think I'll maybe keep an eye out for some discounted Little Bird stuff in the closing down sale though.

I didn't realise they had such a large business overseas (which is unaffected).

Might be worth mentioning that the lorry business is separate from Stobart Group, who are in the air, rail and infrastructure business.
