Former England defender Danny Mills has invested in the struggling West Cornwall Pasty Company, saving 250 jobs.

The firm went into administration last week but was bought by Enact - a consortium of wealthy individuals.

Mills blamed an "overly aggressive" expansion policy and the Government's "pasty tax" for the firm's difficulties.

He told BBC Radio 5 live's Wake Up to Money: "They got into a bit of trouble, so we came in. It's a fantastic brand, great product and we've saved over 200 jobs."
