A recruitment drive is being held in Milford Haven today after an announcement earlier this month that the Murco refinery was to close.

More than three hundred jobs are to be shed at the site after a deal to take it over collapsed.

The company behind the recruitment drive, petrochemical company Ineos, is hoping to fill vacancies at its site in Scotland.

The site in Milford Haven is due to be closed and used as a storage and distribution facility.
