Willington announces that it has today made on-market purchases for cancellation
of a total of 265,000 5 per cent cumulative redeemable preference shares of 85p
each ('preference shares') at a price of 75 pence per preference share,
representing 11.98 per cent of the preference share capital of the Company in

preference shares concerned, 1,946,937 preference shares will remain in issue.

Of the preference shares purchased by the Company, 110,000 (representing 4.97
per cent of the preference shares currently in issue) and 102,218 (4.62 per
cent) comprised preference shares in which, respectively, Konrad Legg and
Richard Robinow, directors of the Company, were beneficially interested.  Such
preference shares were sold at a price of 74.5 pence per share.  As a result of
these transactions, Mr Legg and Mr Robinow are now interested in, respectively,
95,000 and 30,000 preference shares, representing 4.29 and 1.36 per cent of the
preference share capital of the Company in issue prior to the repurchase (or
4.88 and 1.54 per cent. of such capital in issue following cancellation of the
preference shares repurchased).
