A company that designs and manufactures software and equipment primarily for the defence sector has gone into administration, threatening 150 jobs.

Dytecna, based in Malvern, Worcestershire, will continue to trade while a buyer is sought, administrator FRP Advisory said .

FRP said despite a "loyal customer base" the company had recently faced a "deterioration in trading".

The firm also has bases in Fareham, Hampshire, and Welshpool in Powys.

West Worcestershire MP Harriett Baldwin said she understood there had already been interest from a number of potential buyers.

FRP said external investment had "failed to materialise", leaving it with no option but to go into administration

Dytecna has previously supplied equipment to the likes of BAE Systems and QinetiQ.
