Devizes-based Bakkavor Desserts is recruiting for 90 new job positions as business builds up before Christmas. The cake factory was hit hard by the pandemic, and in August was forced to bring in new safety measures.

Shona Taylor, business director for Bakkavor Desserts, said the new vacancies, which include factory staff and warehouse workers, would be an opportunity for local people who have lost jobs to come forward.

She said:
