Toni&Guy has been operating from its High Street store for 18 years.

The hair salon opened in 2001 but will close on June 12, leaving nine staff redundant.

It is the latest shop to close after anchor unit Marks & Spencer vacated the High Street in April and Carphone Warehouse shut down on May 15 after its lease expired.

Some staff members will move on to Cabellos, which will open on June 19 in Baker Street.

An employee, who did not want to be named publicly, told the Mercury: "It is hard to take and we, like the customers, are shocked and upset."
