A major expansion of a Carlisle food factory will create 90 new jobs, company bosses have promised.

Cavaghan and Gray make supermarket ready meals and already employ 970 people in the city.

The company is moving into a new facility after securing a multi million-pound contract which will see an extra 25 product lines.

Site director William Duncanson said the move would help secure the plant's long-term future.

The company, which is owned by Birmingham-based 2 Sisters Food Group, produces more than 80 million meals a year.

Mr Duncanson said the move from the existing Brunel Way site to the new plant at the Riverbank, would be completed by September.
