A company which owns one of Northamptonshire's most prestigious hotels has gone into administration.

Whittlebury Hall, near Silverstone, currently employs more than 300 staff and is used by drivers during the British Grand Prix.

The administrators, Zolfo Cooper said Whittlebury Hall Limited had been going through a period of cash-flow problems.

The hotel will continue to trade as normal and there have been no redundancies so far.

The firm said it was looking for a new buyer for the hotel and expected a significant amount of interest.
