As revealed in the Evening Times, Erskine Furniture has been running up losses of £10,000 per week.

Chief executive Steve Conway paid tribute to the "loyalty and commitment" of the veterans who have staffed the firm in Bishopton, Renfrewshire, while Paisley and Renfrewshire North MP Jim Sheridan appealed to local firms to offer jobs to the redundant staff.

Erskine cares for 1300 veterans.
