Foyle Food Group, the Londonderry-based meat business, has bought an abattoir and factory in the south west of England.

Foyle paid £4m to buy the Ensors business out of administration.

Ensors, which is based Cinderford, Gloucestershire, employs around 130 people.

The deal was funded by Ulster Bank under the government's Funding for Lending scheme.

Foyle, which is owned by the Acheson family, is one of Northern Ireland's biggest meat processors.

It is a major supplier to the Tesco supermarket chain.
