Concrete firm in administration after cold winter

A Lincolnshire concrete business has called in administrators after the firm was hit by the effects of the severe winter weather.

C & G Concrete Limited, based in Stamford, employs about 120 workers.

The firm supplies the construction industry with ready-mixed concrete and mortar and has been operating for more than 50 years.

It has three quarries and plants in Lincolnshire, East Yorkshire and Cambridgeshire.

Sales at the firm were hit during the winter as concrete-laying is not possible in severe weather conditions, it said.

A spokesman for administrators PricewaterhouseCoopers said there were "a number of serious expressions of interest in the business".
