Montgomery Tomlinson: Staff 'devastated' at job losses

by Carole Green

Employees at curtains company Montgomery Tomlinson in Flintshire say they are 'devastated' at the collapse of the business.

Around 500 jobs are being lost, including 146 in Broughton.

One employee told ITV News: "My mum, my brother and his girlfriend got made redundant as well - so it's like four of us in one house. Just devastated. It's going to affect us all, to be honest."

Administrators, who have been on site to wind up the business after 50 years, say a fall in sales left the firm critically short of cash.
