Newquay beach activities firm 'facing insolvency'

A company which runs activities at a beach in Newquay is facing insolvency, BBC Cornwall has learnt.

Staff employed by Lusty Glaze Ltd - registered in Hampshire - have been given redundancy notices.

In the letters, company director Howard Wilkinson said job losses were imminent. It is thought up to 15 people work at the complex.

Staff will meet managers on Friday but have been warned they are facing dismissal.

'No funds'

Lusty Glaze Ltd has not so far been available for comment.

The letters sent out by Mr Wilkinson said that there were "no funds available to make a redundancy payment or to pay any notice or accrued holiday payments".

He has leased the site since February 2010 from Newquay-based couple, Tracey and Jeremy Griffiths.

A number of Cornish companies have told the BBC they are owed money by Lusty Glaze Ltd.

Impact Light and Sound, based in Newquay, said it was owed thousands of pounds.

Lusty Glaze describes itself as a "leisure and education complex" on the north coast of Cornwall.
