1,000 oil refinery jobs in jeopardy

Monaghan Mushrooms has signed a two-year deal with a Belfast firm to provide off-shore software development support.

AROUND 1,000 jobs were at risk after one of the largest oil refineries in the UK fell into administration and stoked fears over fuel supplies. Coryton refinery in Essex - which supplies 20% of fuel in London and the South East - halted sales on Monday and told its staff it was unsure when supplies would start again.
