An outdoor equipment distribution centre in Gwynedd is closing on Friday with the loss of jobs.

Some of the 80 staff at Gelert in Porthmadog have been offered jobs elsewhere in the company which has another distribution centre in Widnes, Cheshire.

The firm announced the job cuts and closure last September which it blamed on losing an important contract.

It came as a big blow locally as it is regarded as an important employer.
