Aviation firm Cobham announces Bournemouth and Teesside job cuts

An aviation company based in Dorset has announced more than 70 job losses.

Seventy workers at Cobham Aviation Services will go from Bournemouth International Airport while six jobs will go at Durham Tees Valley Airport.

In a statement, the Wimborne-based company said it hoped to redeploy or find alternative employment for staff.

The firm said it was ending its non-core engineering consultancy services and focusing on operational training for the UK defence business.

It said the "streamlining" measure would reduce costs.
