Danny Mills invests in struggling pasty company

Former England defender Danny Mills has invested in the struggling West Cornwall Pasty Company, saving 250 jobs.

The firm went into administration last week but was bought by Enact - a consortium of wealthy individuals.

Mills blamed an "overly aggressive" expansion policy and the Government's "pasty tax" for the firm's difficulties.

He told BBC Radio 5 live's Wake Up to Money: "They got into a bit of trouble, so we came in. It's a fantastic brand, great product and we've saved over 200 jobs."
