Effort to save Aberdeen's Remploy factory made

A last-ditch bid to save a factory which employs disabled workers in Aberdeen from closure has been made.

Remploy in St Machar Road employs 15 workers, 14 of whom are disabled.

A case to develop a social enterprise hub in its place was recently rejected.

MPs Anne Begg and Frank Doran met Minister for Disabled People Esther McVey at Westminster for talks. Remploy earlier said it was planning to close 36 of its 54 factories.
