Hundreds more job losses at Rok

Collapsed housing repair firm Rok will lose 268 more jobs on top of the 700 cuts already announced, administrator PwC said yesterday. The job cuts will fall in the Scottish plumbing, heating and electrical business. PwC said it was forced to make the redundancies after talks with potential buyers of the business fell through on Wednesday night, but that discussions about the remainder of the stricken business are ongoing.
