A Scunthorpe factory has announced it is sacking 141 staff.

Karro Food Group, which has a pork processing factory on Billet Lane in the town, is cutting the jobs after a major customer reduced its bacon orders.

The group recently invested £2.5m in specialist bacon slicing facilities at its Scunthorpe site.

A spokesman for Karro said it would be helping redundant staff "as they look for new opportunities".

He added: "Despite all efforts, it is with regret that 141 colleagues will be leaving the business."
