This is terrible news and my first thought is with the staff who will be disappointed, upset and anxious. I ask the company to conduct the process ahead sympathetically and as supportively as possible for the staff affected. Although this appears to be an internal commercial decision, I stand by to help in any way if I can as the constituency MP. It is concerning for our city, coming after some other blows to manufacturing such as Britvic and Colman’s, but we do have a strong local and national economy more broadly and I believe we should remain positive about the jobs and opportunities that there are in Norwich.
