Avana Bakeries job losses in Rogerstone 'devastating'

A bakery in Newport is reported to be cutting 390 jobs by November.

The Avana bakery in Rogerstone, Newport is to make the staff redundant by the end of November, the Bakers, Food and Allied Workers (BFAW) union says.

It comes just weeks after the site was bought by new owners Food Utopia from 2 Sisters Group.

There are around 552 people employed at the firm, with jobs under threat from earlier this year when a major contract was lost.

Paul Heaney reports - and also talks to local councillor Chris Evans about the impact.
