Asda considering up to 2,500 job cuts

Supermarket giant Asda is to begin consultations with staff on changes that could mean up to 2,500 job cuts.

An Asda representative said the firm needed to consider changing employees' roles and working hours.

Asda, which has been owned by US retail giant Walmart since 1999, has agreed to be taken over by rival Sainsbury's.

Union representatives said the news would not put workers' minds at rest about the merger and pledged to fight any job cuts.
