Around 650 Avana Bakeries jobs at risk after M&S contract loss

Workers who face losing their jobs following the loss of a multi-million pound cake contract at a bakery in Newport have spoken of their shock at the announcement.

Marks and Spencer has pulled the plug on its 77 year history with Avana Bakeries, in Rogerstone, leaving about 650 jobs at the site under threat.

The M&S deal makes up 85% of what the Avana bakery produces.

A spokesman for owners 2 Sisters Food Group called the decision a "huge setback".
