Housing Firm Collapses


Social housing firm Connaught, which employs 10,000 people, has been put into administration.

Connaught had been contracted to service gas boilers for Clwyd Alyn Housing Association, a contract worth around £500,000.

The Exeter-based repair and maintenance specialist has been in trouble since it warned in June that Government cuts could have a serious effect.

A total of 1,100 people will have lost their jobs since the West Country firm collapsed last week.
