Sixty-five people have been made redundant after the collapse of a breakdown rescue firm in south Wales.

Liquidators Deloitte said Dragon Rescue ceased trading on 1 September, and it is believed staff lost their jobs that day.

The company had two bases in Cardiff and others in Merthyr Tydfil and Pyle, near Bridgend.

It recovered all types of vehicles, and had a contract with South Wales Police to recover vehicles after road crashes.

Deloitte will start formal proceedings on 20 September, which will include arranging meetings with Dragon Rescue's creditors.
