A food packing firm based in Somerset has announced plans to create around 30 new jobs in Shepton Mallet.

Framptons, based at Charlton Road in the town, wants to expand its premises and build a new warehouse.

"The jobs will range from machine operators through to normal packers," said spokesman Allan Staples.
