Hundreds of jobs at risk in North as Sainsbury's ends Netto venture

Sainsbury's is to end a joint venture with Danish budget supermarket Netto, closing 16 stores in the north of England and putting 400 jobs at risk. The stores are to close during August, Sainsbury's said.

The first of the stores opened in Moor Allerton in Leeds in November 2014.  

It was followed by sites in Cleckheaton, Doncaster, Ellesmere Port, Hull, Lincoln, Lymm, Manchester, Ormskirk, Sheffield, Salford, Southport and Brookfield near Stockport.  

The tie-up was an attempt to rival discounters such as Aldi and Lidl but Sainsbury's said "changing dynamics" in the grocery sector were behind the "difficult decision" to end the trial.

Reaction from Hull to Nigel Farage stepping down

James Piekos

Reporter, BBC Hull and East Yorkshire

I've been speaking to Sergi Singh, who stood for UKIP in Hull North in the last general election.

It's great news that Hull voted out and Nigel was in the driving seat, he's a great character I met him a number of times, he's a really polite chap. He's achieved what he wants to do and obviously we've got to move forward."
