Pinguin announces 34 job losses in Boston

More than half the jobs at a frozen food and storage distribution centre in Lincolnshire could be under threat.

Pinguin Foods has announced that 34 out of 55 staff at its Marsh Lane site on the Riverside Industrial Estate in Boston could lose their jobs.

The Belgian-owned food services provider has given staff a 90-day notice of redundancy, blaming competitive market conditions.

But the firm said it was hopeful the final figure would be lower.

The frozen food group has three sites in the UK - King's Lynn, Boston and Bourne.
