An agricultural and construction machinery company has stopped trading, with the loss of eight jobs.

Administrators Martha Thompson and Danny Dartnaill of BDO were called in to Anthill Plant Hire, which was based in King's Lynn, on July 17.

'The company ceased to trade upon the appointment of administrators and, regrettably, all eight members of staff have subsequently been made redundant following the winding-down process,' said BDO.

'The joint administrators are taking all necessary steps to mitigate losses to customers and, going forward, will seek to maximise recoveries for the benefit of all creditors.'

BDO said it could not yet provide details of the debts owed to creditors.

Anthill Plant Hire, which had its registered office at King Street, in King's Lynn, primarily provided engineering and equipment hire.
