Two affordable housing developments in Somerset which were being built by Rok are to be finished.

The firm went into administration earlier this month, with the loss of about 60 jobs in the county.

It was building 40 homes at Copse Lane, Ilton, and 39 at Hillcrest in Templecombe for Yarlington Housing Group.

Rok's interests in south-west England have now been acquired by Mansell Construction Services.

A spokesman from Yarlington Housing Group said it had entered negotiations with the company to complete the contracts.

The work would be finished by March 2011 upon agreement of the terms, the spokesman said.

A new timetable will be set for work at Cox's Close in Bruton that has not yet started, he added.
