J D Wetherspoon head office jobs cut

A third of head office staff at pub chain Wetherspoon are facing redundancy because of the impact of coronavirus.
Chief executive John Hutson said out of 417 workers at its headquarters in Watford "a possible 110 to 130 positions are at risk".
He said the move was "mainly a result of a downturn in trade in the pub and restaurant industry" but that "no firm decisions" had been made.
The cuts would not directly affect staff in the firm's 873 pubs, he added.
