Debenhams on brink of administration

Debenhams is on the brink of administration after it rejected a new offer from Sports Direct, made in the early hours of Tuesday, to pump £200m into the department store.
Its shares were suspended just before the start of Tuesday's trading, after a request from the company.
On Monday, Debenhams turned down a similar proposal from Mike Ashley's company to put £150m into the retailer.
The new offer was rejected because Mr Ashley wanted to be chief executive.
