A civil engineering company in Gwynedd is going into voluntary administration, resulting in 50 workers losing their jobs.

Caernarfon-based Mulcair told staff on Tuesday about the move.

Recent high-profile projects for the company included building a bridge to replace Pont Briwet across the River Dwyryd and a Welsh Water scheme to alleviate flooding in Deeside.

The company did not add any further comment.
