Plymouth Argyle lowers redundancy figure

Plymouth Argyle's chairman and owner says that no more than five non-playing staff will be made compulsorily redundant.

The club held a meeting earlier this month to tell staff to expect up to 10 redundancies as part of a planned restructuring.

But James Brent told BBC News that he now expected about half that figure after consultation with staff.

The League Two club employs a total of 250 people.

Mr Brent said: "We have been looking at ways to reduce the number of redundancies to an absolute minimum and that process has been very successful so far.

"This shows that consultation processes can work to keep people in employment."
