Hull City Council have confirmed around 240 jobs - the equivalent of 170 full-time jobs - will be lost. It was decided at a cabinet meeting this morning.
It brings expected job losses in the local area to more than 1,000, after Kimberly-Clark confirmed it is to close its giant manufacturing plant in Barton-upon-Humber, putting 378 jobs at risk.
A meeting to try to save 249 jobs at Seven Seas has taken place - and MP Karl Turner says he's "hopeful" the company might stay in Hull, though jobs will still be lost.
