THE Mayor of Mid & East Antrim Borough Council says they are striving to boost the local economy.

The comments by Councillor Lindsay Millar come after the loss of almost sixty jobs at Ballymena-based JBE Electrical Mechanical Ltd.

The Mayor told the February monthly meeting of the council in Ballymena: “Our thoughts are with the employees and their families at this difficult time.

“The Council will continue to work closely with our partners to help boost the local economy and livelihood of people in our Borough.”
