The BBC have reported that more than 200 people have lost their jobs at the East Yorkshire stonemasons, J Rotherham Masonry.

According to administrator KPMG, the company, which makes kitchen worktops, had been ‘unable to meet financial obligations,' and 205 workers - from the company's head office in Holme-on-Spalding-Moor and at its manufacturing site in Market Weighton - have been made redundant.

Howard Smith from KPMG told the BBC that J Rotherham Masonry is ‘highly regarded by its peers and customers,’ and commented that administrators were ‘actively discussing the future of the business with a number of interested parties’.

It is hoped that a positive outcome will be secured and the business will be maintained in the area. For now 25, staff have been retained to help the administrators as they seek a buyer for the business.
