38 jobs to go in Amble
North Northumberland MP Sir Alan Beith has said he will do all he can to help workers at Amble’s Border Laird factory, after today’s shock announcement that the anticipated sale of the business had collapsed and the factory will now close.
Thirty-eight jobs will be lost.
Sir Alan said: “This is a bitter disappointment when a solution and a future for the business seemed to be in place, and the workers at the factory will be devastated by the news.
“I will give any help I can to constituents who are affected by the closure.
“I have kept in touch with the business and the people at the factory during recent months and will be in discussions with ministers and others about Amble’s needs.
“Efforts to generate new jobs for the town need to be redoubled, at what is still a very difficult time for the economy.”
