A DIET and fitness expert who runs classes in Wyre Forest is going it alone after the Rosemary Conley Food and Fitness brand went into administration.

Sandra Todd is one of 121 franchise owners who has been released from her agreement with the company, with her contract being terminated at the end of April.

Mrs Todd will carry on with the same format under the name Sandra Todd Fitness after being with the Rosemary Conley group for eight years.

Since 2006, she has run 11 to 15 classes in Stourport, Kidderminster and Blakedown in a bid to get people into shape.

Mrs Todd said: "Although I have had some brilliant years with the Rosemary Conley brand, I am so excited to be starting this new business, I will be able to offer so much more to my clients."
