Jobs are under threat at a Cornish factory.

Tulip Foods has confirmed 150 could go at Bodmin and two other sites up country.

A consultation has started after the company missed out on a contract.

Bosses are hoping most can be relocated.

Kirsty Wilkins, Tulip Ltd's Group HR Director said: "We are currently operating in an extremely challenging economic environment which has led to the need to announce proposed changes at three of our sites as a result of a failing to secure a tender.

"We have therefore entered into consultation with colleagues whose roles are potentially at risk of redundancy and are working closely with them to, wherever possible, lessen the impact of today's announcement."
