300 jobs to go at closing Mitcheldean warehouse
Hundreds of jobs are under threat in Mitcheldean after a distribution centre announced its plan to close.
The Range is shutting its warehouse at the Vantage Point Business Village in September and moving to Doncaster.
It employs 300 people there, who will soon enter consultations about their futures.
A spokesman for DHL Supply Chain said: "Following a strategic review of its UK network to seek greater efficiencies, The Range is proposing to transfer its warehousing operations currently based at Mitcheldean, to a site at Thorne near Doncaster, operated by DHL.
The father and son relationship is special, catch that perfect bond at a special photoshoot for them.

"Potentially affected staff have been informed of the situation and will shortly enter into consultation with site representatives to discuss their options, including relocating to other DHL or The Range operations in the south west, subject to availability.
"Under the proposal the Mitcheldean site would close by the end of September 2013. Outplacement support will be provided for staff unable to relocate or seeking vacancies outside both organisations.
"Both The Range and DHL thank the team at Mitcheldean for their understanding at this difficult time and stress that this decision in no way reflects on the quality of work at the site."
