Eighty workers have lost their jobs at a Sheffield firm after it hit financial problems.

Joint administrators Howard Smith, Mark Firmin and Paul Flint, from accountants KPMG, shut Orgreave-based Inman Electricals after deciding they were unlikely to sell it as a going concern.

Fifteen of the staff have been retained temporarily to help wind down the business, which supplied electrical goods to customers who included institutional buyers like organisations running university flats and halls of residence, the leisure industry, company kitchens developers of new homes and independent retailers.

Inman had distribution centres in Sheffield, Bristol and London.
