Holiday firm Thomas Cook to cut 195 stores

by - Former Business Editor

Grim news from Thomas Cook - 2,500 jobs going as part of restructure - some stores will close. Sources at Thomas Cook insist this is about changing the structure of the business to secure it for future, not the start of its decline: "We're trying to do it in one go."

They're cutting 195 stores from 1,069 - 2,500 staff going down to 13,000 from 15,500. Job cuts are not a massive surprise - £590m losses just before Christmas and new-ish boss making big changes.
