BIGGLESWADE staff who work for one of Scotland's largest haulage and distribution companies have lost their jobs.

Thirty-six people working for Ramage Distri-bution, which has an office in an industrial unit in Albone Way, Biggleswade, have been told the company has gone into administration.

Today (Friday), administrators KPMG said the company blamed the difficult trading conditions and the rising cost of fuel for the immediate closure of the company with a total loss of 350 jobs.

In a statement KPMG said: "It is with great regret that we have to make substantial redundancies across Ramage Distribution's operations and we are working closely with Government agencies to ensure employees' issues are dealt with as best as possible.

Ramage Distri-bution had an annual turnover of £30m and employed 390 people.
