    The last pack of UK-made cigarettes has rolled off the production line as the country's only tobacco factory prepares to shut down for good.

    The closure of Imperial Tobacco's Horizon factory in Nottingham was announced two years ago and will lead to over 500 job losses.

    Most of the staff will leave next week, with 70 staying on for 18 months as part of the "decommissioning process".

    What we need is locals like yourself going and doing it.

    From the dates they said they were decommissioning they will probably be there a few more months.
