Tata Steel: 1,000 UK jobs to go amid worldwide cuts

Tata Steel has announced it expects to cut 1,000 jobs across the UK as part of the company's restructuring plans.
Two thirds of the job losses will be management and office-based roles, Tata said.
In the Netherlands 1,600 positions are also set to go, with 350 others cut elsewhere in the world.
Tata Steel's Europe CEO, Henrik Adam, said the company "cannot afford to stand still" as "the world around us is changing fast and we have to adapt".
Roy Rickhuss, general secretary of the Community union which represents workers in the steel industry, said Tata's proposals had "no credibility" and had been poorly timed.
"I think the way the company have handled this has been atrocious, it's never a good time but having this announcement hit us a few weeks before Christmas is absolutely scandalous.
"There was no need for this announcement at all at this stage."
