Almost 60 jobs could go in Pensilva.

Muller Wiseman Dairies has started a consultation with staff.

It says the amount of milk the distribution depot is handling is falling.

That is because some customers are setting up their own regional distribution centres instead.

Bosses say some staff could be transferred to Somerset.

David Johnson from union Usdaw said: "We are deeply concerned at the situation and we will examine the business case in detail.

"This is a difficult and worrying time for the staff and we will do all we can to support our members."

The statutory consultation will last 30 days.
