Dairy Crest jobs hang in balance

Nearly 500 jobs were under threat after supermarket milk supplier Dairy Crest announced plans to close two dairies.

The proposed closures involve a glass bottling dairy at Aintree, where 220 people work, and a site in Cambridgeshire employing 250 people. Dairy Crest said a recent £75m investment enabled it to transfer work to its three polybottle dairies.
