20 fish firm jobs axed

OVER 20 jobs are due to be lost at a fish feed manufacturing plant in Westport, Co Mayo.

Workers at the Skretting Ireland plant were told of the company's decision at a meeting this morning.

Skretting's managing director Anthony Murphy said the company was 'reluctantly forced' to close the plant.

He said continued production in Westport had become uneconomic.
