Metalbox jobs fear as parent company seeks to cut capacity

More than 100 jobs at a packaging plant in Worcester are under threat after the company that owns it began talks with staff over the site's future.

Crown Holdings have confirmed it has begun a consultation process at the Metalbox site at Perrywood.

The company said it is looking to cut capacity at its four UK and Ireland Food sites due to "a consistent decline in sales".

A spokesman said no final decisions have yet been made.
