650 Avana Bakeries jobs at risk after M&S contract loss
Around 650 jobs at a bakery chain in Newport are under threat after the company lost a multi-million pound cake contract to a firm in Oldham.
Marks and Spencer has pulled the plug on its deal with Avana Bakeries, in Rogerstone, leaving jobs and the site under threat.
The M&S deal makes up 85% of what the Avana bakery produces.
A spokesman for owners 2 Sisters Food Group called the decision a "huge setback".
Economics correspondent Sarah Dickins reports.
