Retail giant Marks & Spencer have announced the closure of two of its main distribution centres next year, leaving hundreds of jobs at risk.

Following a review of logistics operations by the company, plans to shut its DHL-run site in Long Eaton have been confirmed.

DHL say affected warehouse staff have been informed and are entering a consultation period.

Union Usdaw said the announcement is 'devastating news' for the Derbyshire distribution centre's workforce.

We're in the early stages of changing our supply chain to address flow of product and availability for our customers.

DHL said the DHL-operated transport office will be relocating to M&S distribution centre at Castle Donington, and they will continue to work in partnership with M&S at several of its nationally connected sites.
