Local AM for Barry, Jane Hutt, says she will meet with Premier Foods following its announcement of the closure of its factory with the loss of 43 jobs.
Ms Hutt said it would be a terrible blow, "after a long history of providing jobs for local people at their site in the Docks.
"I will be meeting with the company, Premier Foods and the skilled workforce who are affected, regarding this announcement and will ensure that every avenue of support can be made available to them."
Hovis bread and Mr Kipling cakes firm Premier Foods today revealed plans to shut a 109-year-old flour mill with the loss of 43 jobs.
The group is set to close the mill at Barry Docks by the end of October, bringing to a close a long history in South Wales.
Its Atlantic Mills site was built in 1904 by the then Hovis-Bread Flour Company - Britain's largest flour miller, which has since been renamed Rank Hovis.
Premier said the closure would be phased over the coming months, impacting the mill's workforce and a number of local contractors.
The Vale of Glamorgan Council says it is 'furious' that the Football Association of Wales has stood by its decision regarding Barry Town's place in the Welsh League.
We have stood shoulder-to-shoulder with the club on this matter from the start, and we want the players and the manager to know they will continue to have our unflinching support.
This is not just about football – it is also about pride in the town, its future and the future of our young people.
The FAW says its decision stands regarding the futures of former European Cup entrants Barry Town and Welsh Premier League side AFC Llanelli after a special meeting was held today.
Both clubs had been refused entry into the Welsh Football League following off-field problems last season.
The meeting was called to consider new information in relation to a previous decision of Council concerning Barry Town United and Llanelli Football Club.
Two-thirds of those eligible to vote at the meeting must agree for Standing Orders to be suspended in order to receive the new information and reconsider the decision. Of the 29 Council Members present, 15 voted against and 14 voted for Standing Orders to be suspended.
As such, the information could not be heard and the previous decision of Council, relating to the two clubs, stands.
A man has died after a collision in Barry this afternoon. The accident, involving a grey Toyota Camry and a grey Vauxhall Astra, happened at around 1.55pm.
The Toyota driver, a 63-year-old local man, was pronounced dead at the scene. The 71-year-old driver of the Vauxhall was taken to hospital for treatment for shock.
South Wales Police is appealing for anyone who witnessed the incident to contact 101.
"The Vale of Glamorgan Council is extremely disappointed to hear of the Football Association of Wales’ decision not to permit the newly named Barry Town United AFC to remain within the Welsh Football League.
The Barry Town Supporters’ Committee have funded the playing of football by Barry Town at Jenner Park for the last two seasons. This committee, club manager Gavin Chesterfield, his management team and the players are a credit to Barry and the Vale of Glamorgan and have all worked tirelessly to retain a Barry Town football team at the highest levels of Welsh football.
The council is considering its position in this case matter as we very much recognise the importance of a high standard of football to Barry and the Vale of Glamorgan as a whole.
The ramifications of the decision are considerable as the council planned to work with Barry Town United AFC to improve youth football for both boys and girls and to develop improved coaching skills across the various Leagues, who use the Vale’s pitches, to improve the standard of amateur football.
Former European Cup entrants Barry Town and Welsh Premier League side AFC Llanelli have been refused entry into the Welsh Football League following both clubs' off-field problems last season.
Barry Town were withdrawn from the Welsh League last season by owner Stuart Lovering but had been reformed by a group of supporters under the name of Barry Town United AFC with the hope of continuing nest season in the Welsh pyramid.
Llanelli AFC were forced out of business earlier this season after the High Court ordered them to be wound-up with tax debts of around £21,000 owed to Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs.
A meeting of the Football Association of Wales Council considered both applications for the newly formed versions of both clubs to be re-entered in the Welsh Football League but they have rejected the idea, recommending that both apply for member of their local association.
In practice that means both clubs will have to start at the very bottom of Welsh football if they wish to cary on.

The birth of three bald eagle chicks in captivity is "very usual", says Griff Griffiths, owner of the Wales Hawking Centre.
"People have had [bald eagles] in private collections and zoos in Wales for a long time, but they're notoriously difficult to raise"
"They just lose to too much weight and they die just before they hatch from an egg, unfortunately."
Three bald eagles have been born at the Welsh Hawking Centre in Barry. They're thought to be the first triplets in Wales.
It might seem hard to believe - but their wing span could eventually stretch to seven feet...
