Phoenix Healthcare depot in Penrith. 40 people could lose their jobs
Workers at a healthcare distribution depot in Penrith were told it would close, with the loss of around 40 jobs. Jayne Shotton, from USDAW, the union which represents the employees, said the news would have a big impact on the area.

The firm was unavailable for comment on Saturday.
USDAW, the union which represents the workers, said they were told in an announcement on Wednesday and are now in consultation with the firm.
