Murco refinery workers 'will have to look abroad'

Only around 60 jobs will remain from a workforce of hundreds at an oil refinery in Pembrokeshire after a deal to sell it collapsed.

Workers were "shocked and devastated" as it was confirmed Murco in Milford Haven would be converted to a storage and distribution facility.

The sale to the Swiss-based Klesch Group was called off on Tuesday night after certain conditions were not met.

Instrument technician David John has worked at the plant for 14 years and found out that the deal had collapsed in an email on Tuesday night.

He said workers would have to consider taking jobs abroad.
