Shares in fishmonger and restaurant chain FishWorks remained suspended at 1.85p as The Grocer went to press, pending clarification of its ­financial position.

The chain, which has 10 stores in London, Bath, Bristol and Christchurch, voluntarily requested the suspension.

In November, FishWorks reported a pre-tax loss of £5.5m.

At the time it said its bank remained supportive and it had rescheduled its borrowings to reduce monthly interest payments.
