Administrators called in to auto spares firm Rapid Car Parts

One Norfolk branch of a UK-wide distributor of automotive parts and accessories has closed after administrators were called in.

Administrators from PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) have closed the North Walsham branch of Rapid Car Parts along with three others in the South East - but said there were 'no planned redundancies' at this stage.

The firm's remaining five sites - including facilities in Whiffler Road, Norwich, Vanguard Road, Great Yarmouth, and Barnards Way, Lowestoft - remain open and continue to trade.

About 90 people are employed across its UK operations.

PwC's Chris Pillar said: 'The business is very well-established with a strong customer base across the South East and East Anglia.
