Anglesey Aluminium factory closure prompts jobs concern

Sixty jobs are to go after it was announced that the Anglesey Aluminium factory will close.

Local politicians warned of a jobs crisis on the island with confirmation that the Penhros plant will stop operations within two months, with 20 workers kept on until the site is sold.

The Holyhead smelting operation shut in 2009 with the loss of nearly 400 jobs.

The remaining 80 staff have been at the plant as part of a decommissioning process and its re-melt business.
