Hundreds of jobs are under threat after the Shropshire-based Wrekin Construction Group, which banks with Royal Bank of Scotland, went into administration. The company, which employs up to 600 workers across Britain, said that it had millions of pounds worth of orders.

Mark Pritchard, MP for The Wrekin, said that the company had been forced into administration because of RBS’s 'inflexibility' in releasing funds.
