The future of a chain of family butchers’ shops in Mansfield, Kirkby and Sutton is in jeopardy after it was claimed the company has gone into voluntary liquidation.

Staff EA Bird & Sons in Worksop told staff today that they would be closing with the loss of eight jobs.

However, no official announcement has been made but the future of the shops on Mansfield’s Leeming Street, Kirkby’s Low Moor Road and Sutton’s Low Street looks uncertain.

The company, which started up in Kirkby, has been trading for more than a century.

According to their website, they employ 35 people.
