Forty-eight workers who lost their jobs at a teddy bear factory last month have been told they will not receive their redundancy money before Christmas.
The family-run firm was started in 1930
Merrythought, a family-run firm based in Ironbridge, Shropshire, said the closure was because it could not compete with foreign producers.
Many of the workers are still owed outstanding wages.
The company has been making collectable bears, soft toys and rocking and wheeled horses for 76 years.
