Broughton Printers Fulwood (Permission Visit)

Printing at the Preston-based factory ceased on 8 July, following Express Newspapers' decision to outsource the printing of its four major titles for the north of England to Johnston Press on a five-year contract.
A spokesman for Broughton Printers said: "It's a very sad day for Preston and for all of us. So many people have worked here for such a long time."
Broughton Printers was founded in 1988 and was acquired by Northern & Shell as part of its purchase of Express Newspapers in 2001. At its height the plant employed more than 200 staff and printed 11m newspapers per day
