More than half of factories employing mainly disabled workers are set to close, with the loss of 1,700 jobs in a move attacked as "barbaric".


The Government announced that Remploy is proposing to close 36 of its 54 factories, with potential compulsory redundancies of 1,752 people, including 1,518 disabled employees.
