Heinz has announced plans to move more of its manufacturing to a plant in Shropshire.

The plant in Telford would take over manufacturing from a site at Turnhout in Belgium, which the company wants to close.

A spokesperson said this would mean another 80 jobs at the Telford plant.

The company proposal to close the plant in Belgium is "subject to a consultation process with representatives of affected employees".

Heinz has 118 employees at its Telford site.
