BLOCKBUSTER stores on the Isle of Wight are safe from closure for now, administrators have confirmed.

On Saturday administrators for the entertainment rental firm, Deloitte, announced 129 store closures, in addition to 31 stores including Cowes, already due to close.

But a spokeswoman said today that the Island’s three other stores, in Shanklin, Ryde and Newport, were not among the 129 due to be axed.

Further closures have not been ruled out however.
