Tesco bakeries overhaul puts 1,800 jobs at risk

Supermarket giant Tesco is set to cut more than 1,800 jobs as it makes changes to bakeries in larger stores.
It said that 1,816 bakery staff were at risk of redundancy, with the changes taking place from May.
The retailer said it would convert 58 of its bakeries so they will only finish pre-baked products on-site.
Jason Tarry, the head of Tesco UK & Ireland, said it needed to "adapt to changing customer demand", with fewer people buying traditional loaves.
The move comes as sales of bagels, wraps and flatbreads is increasing, according to Tesco.
Bakeries at 257 sites will remain unchanged, with a further 201 still offering some products baked from scratch.
