A meeting of creditors of Waterford Wedgwood, which has been sold to a US private equity firm, has been held in Stoke-on-Trent.

Last month it was announced that the company, which went into administration in January, had been sold to New York-based KPS Capital Partners.

The meeting, at Britannia Stadium, was aimed at giving people owed money a chance to come forward and make claims.

Costs incurred by administrators Deloitte were also discussed.

A report compiled for the meeting includes details of how the company ended up going into administration and statements from directors.

The Waterford Wedgwood group had debts of about £400m when it went into administration.
