Closed Glencraft factory for blind attracts interest

Aberdeen's Glencraft factory for blind and disabled workers, which closed with the loss of 51 jobs, has attracted interest from potential buyers.

Liquidators Tenon Recovery have been appealing for help to save the Glencraft business.

They said a number of inquiries had been made about salvaging parts of the business - but they did not want to build up false hopes.

The factory had operated since 1843, but closed earlier this month.

There were tearful scenes as the workers lost their jobs.

The Glencraft board blamed the city council's lack of support for the collapse. However the council argued it had tried everything to help.
