About 60 jobs are at risk at brewery Greene King's Bury St Edmunds headquarters as the industry faces 'considerable cost pressures'.

The company has announced a restructure of its office teams in Bury and Burton upon Trent with about 100 roles at risk across the two sites including 60 in Bury.

Twenty five new roles will be created and there will be a consultation process.

A spokesman said the industry is facing 'considerable cost pressures'.

"We need to focus on supporting our pubs and believe the proposed structure will deliver a simpler, more effective way of working and at the same time reduce costs," he said.

"We are working hard to minimise the number of redundancies and are supporting any colleague who is at risk of redundancy by trying and find an alternative role in the business.

"This decision has not been taken lightly but is necessary to ensure that Greene King is sustainable and fit for the future. We are hugely proud and passionate of our roots and heritage and are absolutely committed to Bury, which has been our home for 219 years."
