Local perfume factory faces closure

Perfume problems: A factory near Lincoln is facing closure in a tough economic climate.

A perfume factory just outside Lincoln is set to go into administration, threatening up to 100 jobs in the area.

Eros Laboratories based in Metheringham may get closed due to fierce competition against its owners, Rochmills.

The Lincoln branch specialises in alcohol-based products like body spray, but also works on creams and lotions.

According to the BBC, the workers of the factory have been informed.

This is another blow to Eros, as in 2004 their application to build a warehouse in Potterhanworth was overturned by the council and residents.
