Fish factory sale to create new jobs

New jobs will be created in Grimsby with the sale of a fish processing factory. 

The Seachill site had been closed after the company lost a contract with Marks and Spencer, but has now been bought by a company called Seagold.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors say it's a real concern and means some current "brickies" are earning up to £1,000 per week.
