Marks & Spencer women's wear supplier Dewhirst on Thursday announced it will close its last remaining Welsh factory with the loss of around 180 jobs.

News of the Fishguard factory closure comes just weeks after the firm revealed it would shut its plant in Cardigan with the loss of 325 jobs and just days after the axe fell on its 435 workers in Swansea with production moved to Morooco.

The company said the latest cuts were due to M&S' decision to source more clothes from overseas instead of the UK.

A Dewhirst spokesman said the closure is "a direct result of continued consumer pressure on prices that has led to insufficient profitable business being available to maintain a UK manufacturing base at current levels".

Dewhirst used to operate five plants in Wales but shut its Lampeter factory last year with the loss of 165 jobs.
