Comet worker on last day at Newport store

Electrical chain Comet will shut the last of its stores later after it went into administration last month.

The administrators running the chain say the company's collapse could cost the government more than £49m in redundancy payments and lost tax revenues.

Around 7,000 people worked for the retailer which had 240 stores across the UK, including 14 in Wales.

Ten of the Welsh stores have already closed with the final four to shut on Tuesday - in Bridgend, Cardiff, Newport and Swansea.

Graham Neale, an employee at Comet in Newport, described the mood of the last day at work to Bethan Rhys Roberts on BBC Radio Wales.
