Ashley sacks entire House of Fraser management team

Mike Ashley's firm has sacked the senior management at House of Fraser just weeks after it bought the department store chain.
In a one-sentence announcement to the stock market, Sports Direct said it had "dismissed the former directors and senior management of House of Fraser".
The move followed "calls for an investigation" into the retailer's collapse, the statement added.
Sports Direct paid £90m for House of Fraser's 58 UK stores in August.
Those departing the chain will include chief executive Alex Williamson.
It is not clear who will replace the management team at House of Fraser, or how many people are affected by the decision.
