Supermarket chain Morrisons has announced it is to axe 2,600 jobs as part of a drive to modernise the way its stores are managed.

Chief executive Dalton Philips wants to remove layers of management that currently mean some stores have seven tiers between shop floor and store manager.

The changes will involve around 2,600 redundancies, although Morrisons said this year will also see it create 1,000 jobs in its M local convenience stores and an additional 3,000 in new supermarkets.

It said it will look to relocate staff to these businesses where possible.
