Another UK clothing factory is under threat after Courtaulds Ladieswear confirmed that it was reviewing the future of its Rotherham plant in South Yorkshire. Fears for the future of the factory arose as staff at another Courtaulds factory - at West Auckland in County Durham - were reassured about their jobs. They were told that the Rotherham factory was at risk and that has now been officially confirmed by management at Courtaulds Ladieswear.
