Pork Firm 'Saved'

A pork processing plant which was in danger of closing has found a buyer. Stevenson & Co in Cullybackey, which has been in business for more than 150 years, announced proposals to close in October of last year.

However, Dungannon-based group Dunbia announced on Thursday that it was to acquire the business, saving more than 100 jobs.

The multi-million pound venture will also create up to 70 new jobs and boost existing pork production.
