2 Sisters meat packing jobs news in Merthyr 'shock'

Bosses have been meeting staff and union representatives at the 2 Sisters meat processing factory in Merthyr Tydfil.

More than 350 of the 1,100 workers are at risk of losing their jobs with the company looking to move its packaging operations to another factory in Cornwall.

There has been a meat processing business on the site since 1999 but 2 Sisters took over the plant three years ago.

Ben Landers, who has been working in packing as an agency worker for four months, told BBC Wales business correspondent Brian Meechan there was very little alternative in the area.
