Pub chain Greene King plans to cut about 100 office jobs

Brewer and pub operator Greene King is to shed about 100 jobs because of "considerable cost pressures".
It said the planned restructure would affect office teams in Bury St Edmunds and Burton upon Trent but would also see 25 new roles created.
The company said it had experienced a "challenging" year with rising costs, increased competition and poor weather.
A spokesman said the decision was necessary to ensure the company is "sustainable and fit for the future".
"The industry in which we operate is facing considerable cost pressures and we are not immune," he added.
"We need to focus on supporting our pubs and believe the proposed structure will deliver a simpler, more effective way of working and at the same time reduce costs.
"This decision has not been taken lightly but is necessary to ensure that Greene King is sustainable and fit for the future."
