Poundworld cuts 98 head office staff

Poundworld has axed 98 jobs from its head office as administrators struggle to find a buyer for the discount retailer.
The job cuts at the office in Normanton, West Yorkshire, come after the business collapsed last week, putting a total of 5,100 jobs at risk.
The chain, owned by private equity firm TPG Capital, started with a market stall in Wakefield set up in 1974.
Its administrator Deloitte has now been forced to make 98 staff redundant.
