An audiobook publisher that employs more than 100 people in Bath has gone into administration.

A spokesperson for Audio Go, formerly BBC Audiobooks, said the majority of staff would be made redundant.

It follows the discovery of financial irregularities in the company and the suspension of managing director Mike Bowen and departure of financial director Bradley Whittock.

Financial firm BDO will be appointed as administrators.

BBC Worldwide retains a 15% stake in the company after selling an 85% shareholding in BBC Audiobooks to AudioGo Limited in 2010.
