Reaction to collapse of Jamie Oliver's restaurant chain

Jamie Oliver's restaurant chain has become the latest to collapse into administration. All but three of the celebrity chef's 25 restaurants, which include Jamie's Italian, Barbecoa and Fifteen, are now closed. Kate Nicholls Chief Executive of UK Hospitality has described a "toxic cocktail" of rising costs and consumer uncertainty "fuelled by political uncertainty of Brexit" as a "real challenge" to the restaurant industry.
