TEN new jobs will be created on the Isle of Wight with the opening of a new furniture factory and showroom.

James Purves, John Diffey and James Patterson, who all come from a manufacturing background, founded Lynchwood Furniture last year and are investing £300,000 in a new furniture factory at Isle of Wight Airport, Sandown.

The company said most of the new jobs will be in manufacturing but it also plans to open a new showroom in April.

Mr Purves, managing director, said: "We are excited to be associated with the Island and we will be using Island-based suppliers as much as possible."

He said they would advertise the vacancies next month.
