More than 1100 jobs at Hewlett Packard (HP) are to be lost at the beginning of 2014 - just under a months time.
A total of 618 jobs could be lost at the company's Bracknell base. Many of those facing redundancy either work from home or within the organisations employing HP.
The company blamed falling demand and reorganisation for the job losses that it wants to implement in the first three months of 2014.
