Centrica to cut 6,000 jobs

Centrica has stated that it will be cutting 6,000 jobs after the British Gas side of the company had reported a doubling of its profits for the first part of the year. The majority of the job losses will effect the UK and Centrica is hoping that the majority of the job losses will be through redundancies.

The profits of British Gas have risen from 265 million to £528 million from this point last year, and Centrica has promised to create more jobs in other areas of their business to compensate for the 6,000 they will be cutting.
