Hundreds of UK jobs may be set to go after the announcement by mobile phone company Nokia that it is to trim its workforce.

Among those at risk could be workers at the company's UK head office in Farnborough.

One company facing staff issues is the BBC, where journalists are poised to strike over plans to make some of them redundant.

A National Union of Journalists [NUJ] ballot found 77 per cent in favour of two days of action, which are scheduled for the April 3rd and 9th.

The NUJ said the vote underlined the determination of the union not to accept compulsory redundancies.
