A tyre factory is planning to cut 300 jobs, its bosses have announced.

 
Cooper Tire and Rubber Company in Melksham, Wiltshire wants to cut the jobs over the next 10 months from a workforce of 732.


In a meeting held on Wednesday workers were given letters stating the site "was an older, smaller facility that did not offer economies of scale".


Bosses are now consulting with the trade union Unite over redundancies and jobs available at its other sites.
