Welsh Country Foods meat plant workers finish last shift

Around 310 workers at an Anglesey meat plant have finished their last shift after efforts to find a buyer failed.

Dutch firm Vion gave redundancy notices to the entire workforce at Welsh Country Foods at Gaerwen on Thursday.

The company said it had tried everything to avoid closure but it had been unable to identify any viable alternative.

The Hybu Cig Cymru meat promotion agency said the closure would also deprive it of funds to promote produce.
