Superdry is closing eight of its 104 stores across the UK but has denied it is part of its previously announced cost-cutting measures.

The retailer said the decision was made by an independent owner who operates the branches, according to the Sun.

It comes after Superdry revealed in April that it needed to cut costs and "estate optimisation" was part of their plans.
