--- Update: Use our tags credit crunch and jobs for continuing updates on the jobs front in the region ---

It's becoming difficult to keep a tally on all the jobs going in the region what with confirmed losses and all the firms in discussions with staff about 'savings' and possible redundancies.

Rexam Plastic Packaging, Deeside industrial estate, is set to close with the loss of 70 jobs.

Payne Security is considering closing its branch on Bromfield Industrial Estate, Mold, which makes personal ID cards, and 31 workers are at risk of being made redundant.

Meanwhile, 13 workers have been made redundant at Discover Leisure, Wrexham's Industrial Estate, which is one of seven branches being closed by the caravan and leisure retailer.

These latest announcements take the losses in NE Wales to 1942 since the credit crunch began.
