Dairy Crest has sold its former creamery site to be redeveloped with the potential to create hundreds of jobs.

The old Dairy Crest Creamery in Whitland, Carmarthenshire, has been sold to a JV consortium led by Cardiff-based property company Dovey Estates for an undisclosed sum.

The consortium plans to redevelop the 18-acre site to create new residential and employment opportunities.
