'Shock' over 330 jobs at risk at Mabey Bridge, Chepstow

An engineering firm has announced the proposed closure of one site in Chepstow and the sale of another, putting 330 jobs at risk.

Mabey Bridge has begun a consultation on the planned closure of its business in Station Road where 150 people work.

It is also looking for a buyer for its renewables section in Mathern, Chepstow, which employs 180 people.

A company spokesman said it anticipated a buyer would be found to support that area of the business.

Neath Port Talbot College's business skills director Wyn Prichard said the news was a shock.
