More than 20 workers have been affected by the move

The franchises for Kia and Suzuki in Selkirk were acquired from previous owners the Belmont Group in March 2018.

Stuart Robb, joint administrator, acknowledged it was disappointing news for staff based at Selkirk.

He added: “Our focus is to ensure that those employees affected by redundancy there receive the best support possible.”

He said there had been “significant interest” in the rest of the business with “advanced discussions” being held with a number of parties.
