Brighton already treating Borders like a dead man walking

Panic in the centre of Brighton as they watch Borders struggle for life:

A prime shopping site could lay empty for months following the collapse of bookshop Borders.

This despite the chain (currently) still being a going concern. But the worry - which seems to come solely from the Evening Argus looking to fill a square on its pages - hasn't been helped by Churchill Square's failure to fill the slot left by Zavvi. Ah, if the Virgin Megastore had remained in its gorgeous building along Western Road, the hole might have been less apparent.
