More than 100 people bombarded bosses with applications for just four jobs at a company which is expanding in Shropshire.

Bosses at Mrs Mopp Cleaning Services in Telford said they have been swamped with applications for the posts which are up for grabs in Shrewsbury.

Dozens of prospective employees also turned up for a special recruitment event and now a second is being organised to complete all the interviews.

Kelly Ward, owner of Mrs Mopp Cleaning Services, said she was overwhelmed by the huge number of people who turned out at the job centre in Shrewsbury on Friday.

Mrs Ward said more than 100 people applied by e-mail, message or in person for the four jobs on offer.

Despite advertising the event in advance and asking people to pre-book an interview slot, Mrs Ward was inundated with people turning up to apply for the jobs without booking.

She said: "I had six people booked in for interview after getting swamped with applications over the last few weeks since I announced the expansion.

"But a total of 27 people turned up on the day within minutes of the fair starting. It was unbelievable and totally unexpected.

"This just shows there are eager and willing people out there wanting to earn a living."

She added: "I will be offering as many jobs as possible and will then keep the details of any other candidates for further expansions which could now be sooner than expected as I have so many keen potential members of staff.

"I will now have to set up a second jobs fair to give all of the remaining people the opportunity for interview as it's not their fault so many turned out."

The mother-of-four set up her company in 2008 when she cleaned all of the properties on her own. She now has a team of 'moppettes' in Telford and will now have second team working in Shrewsbury. and now plans monthly recruiting sessions. For details on the vacancies, visit www.mrsmopp.com
