Staff have been informed of the plans, which will put 100 jobs at risk across the country.

A Virgin media spokesperson said: "We have carried out a thorough review of our sales operation which included looking at the performance of our retail stores and kiosks.

"As a result, we are making changes to our sales functions and are proposing to close 25 of our outlets.

"Our proposal will see us retain 53 retail outlets across the UK from which we can continue to serve our customers and we’re focused on making those stores a fantastic place for our customers to engage with our sales teams and to experience first-hand our amazing products and services.

"This is happening alongside investment in our online sales and customer service channels."

"We are now consulting with our people and are supporting employees impacted by the proposal, including identifying opportunities to move to new roles within Virgin Media."

The closures are expected to take place in March and April.
