A £5m saw mill development in Market Drayton is expected to bring 48 jobs to the town, including "at least" 13 new ones, the company has said.

Hales Sawmills is moving to a 15 acre site on the Adderley Road Industrial Estate from Staffordshire and is due to open in January 2015.

The company said it has started work on building two treatment plants.

Shropshire Council said the scheme would give the town's economy a "major boost".
