The boss of easyJet will take a salary cut to demonstrate his "personal commitment" to equal pay.

Johan Lundgren requested that his £740,000 salary is reduced to match that of his predecessor, Dame Carolyn McCall, who earned £706,000 when she left the airline in November.

Mr Lundgren began his role as chief executive on December 1 last year, joining from tour operator Tui.

Dame Carolyn left the Luton-based carrier to join ITV as the broadcaster's first ever female chief executive.
