Deal reached ‘in principle’

An industrialist has reached a deal, in principle, over the sale of Northern Ireland’s Wrightbus.

Jo Bamford (b. 1977) said he had negotiated an agreement with ‘the Wright family for the Wrightbus factory and land’.

Mr Bamford added: ‘We are still to conclude a deal with the administrators but are pleased to report this important step in the right direction.

‘I would like to thank Ian Paisley [b. 1966] for his hard work and diligence in helping to mediate what has, at times, been a tricky negotiation.’
