Co Antrim building firm Dixons Contractors has entered administration, putting 90 jobs at risk.

The company is based in Dunloy and has three divisions, Dixons Construction, Dixons Homes and Dixons Facades.

Founded in 1979, the company employs around 90 people and works throughout the UK and Ireland.

Sinn Fein MLA Phillip McGuigan said that the news was a "major blow" to the economy in North Antrim.

“Dixons have been a major employer and contributor to the local area over many decades and this news has been met with shock and disappointment," he said.

“My thoughts are with the workforce who will obviously feel this terrible blow the greatest.”
