The most recent store closure took place in Leeds at Crossgates Shopping Centre.

There have been a number of other closures this year as the retailer also relocates and opens other branches.

A New Look spokesperson said: "As part of the normal course of business, New Look occasionally closes stores, while also undertaking relocations and new site openings.

"While some sites have closed recently, we have opened a number of new stores this year and we remain on the lookout for appropriate new opportunities across the country."

While more than 10 stores have closed this year, other branches are expected to open.
