Scottish power to cut jobs at Longannet

A total of 120 jobs will go in a shake-up at the Longannet coal-fired power station in Fife, Scottish Power said yesterday. The cuts, at all levels including management, were expected to be on a voluntary basis and would reduce the workforce by 20 per cent to 530.
