It declined to reveal the total number of further roles that will be cut, but said it would be in the "hundreds".

Chief executive Mike Coupe told staff: "We have to adapt to continue to meet the needs of our customers now and in the future and, while change can be hard, it's also necessary."

He added: "We already have a sense of momentum across the business and can accelerate this by streamlining our structure and responding to customer needs more quickly."
