More job losses cannot be ruled out, Jersey Post's chief executive has said.

Kevin Keen said its business from mail order companies had fallen by 66% since April when the UK Treasury stopped Channel Island companies from selling goods tax-free to UK customers.

He said: "Unfortunately we might see some redundancies. We had 40 people working in business, we are down to 30, but... it might be a few more."

Jersey Post could also reduce the number of postboxes in the island.

Mr Keen said there were 189 collection boxes in Jersey and many were rarely used.

"Something I want to do and we are going to try and do it later in the year is probably reduce the number of these so that we can dedicate the resource to the collection boxes that people do use," he said.

"In the last few months we have increased the pick up rates at the some of the more popular boxes in the village areas of some of the parishes."
