Future publishing, whose titles include Total Film, is set to axe a 10th of its 1,000-strong UK workforce and close a series of titles following disappointing results last week.

The publishing group announced on Friday that revenues had fallen 5 per cent in the nine months to the end of June. It revealed at the time that the US operation was to be made "primarily digital", adding there would be a reorganisation in the UK.

Insiders confirmed about 100 staff would go and eight titles including DVD & Blu-Ray Review and Hi-Fi Choice faced closure.
