Cruise firm Carnival UK 'to cut 450 jobs'

The operator of British cruise lines P&O Cruises and Cunard is planning to make hundreds of staff redundant.
It is thought 450 jobs could go at Carnival UK's headquarters in Southampton, where about 1,600 people currently work.
Staff who keep their jobs are being asked to accept a 20% pay cut until November.
Last month it announced sailings were suspended until at least 31 July due to the coronavirus pandemic.
In a statement, Carnival said: "Unfortunately like many businesses, Covid-19 has continued to impact our way of life.
"It is necessary to make changes to our organisation to build a stable platform for the time we phase our ships back into service and for future growth."
A Carnival spokesman confirmed it had begun consulting staff based at its headquarters Carnival House in Harbour Parade.
