Royal Mail is planning to cut 1,600 roles, mostly head office managerial jobs, as part of a drive to cut costs.

The postal delivery service says the net effect will be 1,300 job losses, as it plans to create 300 new or enhanced roles at the same time, but unions have warned that the plans could lead to industrial action.
