VIDEO: Tesco to cut 4,500 jobs from stores

PA

Around 4,500 staff at Tesco are set to lose their jobs in the latest round of redundancies at the UK's biggest supermarket, the company has announced. The majority of workers will go from Tesco's Metro stores, with other positions going at some Express and larger stores, Tesco said. Bosses want to overhaul the Metro stores, which are bigger than Express stores but smaller than larger supermarkets, saying that shoppers tend to use them for top-up shops, rather than buying bigger baskets.
