A Devon pet food manufacturer has gone into administration.

Winkleigh-based Forthglade Ltd, which has been trading since 1971, employs nearly 80 staff.

Administrators Begbies Traynor said that they anticipated that a buyer would be found very quickly for the business.

Forthglade's directors said they were working with the administrators "to secure the long term job security" at the manufacturing plant.
