The sausage-skin maker Devro is to close one of its two Lanarkshire factories with the loss of 90 jobs. The company has announced to shut its Bellshill operation.

Devro said it intends to increase manufacturing at its other North Lanarkshire site in Moodiesburn, which recently received a £ 2 mill. investment. It said the closure was in response to changing consumer trends and was "part of Devro's drive to achieve a fully integrated global business".

Chief executive Rutger Helbing said: "Scotland will remain strategically important to Devro's global operations. However, the collagen market is evolving and we must look at how we manage our business and stay competitive."
