HILCO emerged yesterday as the front runner to buy the brand of collapsed camera chain Jessops.

The retail restructuring firm, which bought HMV’s debt from its lenders on Tuesday, is understood to be mulling a plan to open Jessops concessions in HMV’s stores.

Administrators PwC have received around half a dozen expressions of interest for the brand. All of Jessops 187 stores closed on 9 January.
