From Amateur Photographer:
 
Jessops’ unsecured creditors, who include customers and suppliers, were owed around £115m – more than twice the amount feared when the chain collapsed under former owners a year ago, it has emerged.
 
The total value of unsecured creditor claims has risen to £114.8m - 135% higher than originally estimated, according to a new report by administrator PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC).
 
PwC had estimated the figure to be less than £50m when the chain collapsed in January 2013, closing its 187 stores and shedding 1,500 staff.
 
The administrator says unsecured creditors are not likely to receive more than 0.2% of what they were owed.
