Direct Line Group 'to axe 900 jobs'
RBS insurance arm Direct Line Group is to axe 900 roles as part of proposals that will see it close a site in the North East, sources said.
The group, which owns the Churchill and Green Flag brands and employs some 15,000 staff in total, is planning the redundancies as part of a £100 million cost-saving move, it is understood.
Some 500 of the jobs could go under plans to close a site in Stockton-on-Tees while the other job losses are expected to be spread across the group's locations throughout the UK.
