94 jobs are at risk in Deeside after a towbar company announced it's to close.

In a statement, Unite said the proposed redundancies at Witter Towbars were 'devastating news' for the workforce in Deeside.

The union stated the company was relocating to low cost countries in the Horizon Global Group.

The news is a devastating blow for the workforce, their families and the automotive industry. We have now entered a 90 day consultation with the company and Unite's priority is to ensure that our members' valuable expertise and skills are not lost and are transferred to other employers in the sector.

– Jo Goodchild, Unite Wales
