Whiteleys Garden Centre goes into administration

A West Yorkshire garden centre has called in administrators after suffering from "financial pressures".

Whiteleys, in Mirfield, has been trading for more than 25 years.

The company said it would remain open for business over Christmas and had no plans to make any of its 45 full-time and part-time staff redundant.

Julian Pitts, from administrators Begbies Traynor, said the firm was "a viable business" and that a buyer was being sought.

Mr Pitts said: "This is a long established business with a loyal customer base and represents an excellent investment opportunity.

"We expect it to generate a high level of interest which we anticipate will result in securing a future for one of the area's most popular garden centres."
