Corby Solway Foods workers told factory is closing

Hundreds of workers at a food factory in Northamptonshire have been told there is no hope of saving it from closure.

The announcement came as 500 staff at Solway Foods in Corby worked their last shift at the factory.

Now the remaining 400 workers have been told all the jobs will go when the operation shuts down in August.

Staff leaving the factory, the town's second biggest employer, said they were shocked and saddened.
