Staff at Blockbuster stores in St Albans and Harpenden face an uncertain future after the film rental company became the latest high street casualty today.

The store is expected to remain open for now but a number of the chain’s 528 locations will be closed.

Details of which stores will shut have not yet been released.

Blockbuster has units in London Road, St Albans and High Street, Harpenden.

Gift vouchers are still being accepted.

The rental company is the third high street name to fall into administration this month, following Jessops and HMV.
