Unions warn Kew Gardens 'debate'

Unions have called for a "proper debate" on the future of Kew Gardens amid spending cuts which could lead to the loss of more than 120 jobs.

The Public and Commercial Services union and Prospect warned that government funding cuts will "irreversibly damage" the work of the famous Royal Botanic Gardens.

Kew said it was facing "significant financial challenges", including a shortfall of £5 million in the current year.
