More than 100 people are to lose their jobs at a factory which makes cardboard cartons in Cheltenham.

Vibixa said 105 jobs would go and its site in Kingsditch Lane would be closed with a "managed run down of production" being completed early next year.

The company added it had been a "difficult decision" and it was working with unions to help "colleagues find new roles".

The firm makes packaging for a range of food brands including Weetabix.
