A Grimsby fish processing firm is to cut 86 job after losing a contract with a supermarket chain.

Icelandic Seachill is shutting its deli operation after Marks and Spencers announced last month it was switching to a different supplier.

The company said its deli site would close in March 2017 with some of the remaining work transferred to another factory in the town.

It said it had concluded a consultation with unions over the job losses.

In a statement Icelandic Seachill said: "We appreciate this is a difficult and sensitive time for our employees, and our priority as a business is to support those affected by M&S's decision."
