Digital developments force Kodak to close shutters at Nottingham film facility

Photography
equipment manufacturer Kodak is to cut 600 jobs in the UK
and close a factory in Nottinghamshire.

Around
350 jobs will be lost at the Nottingham
film plant, while a further 250 posts will be shed at its site in Harrow,
Middlesex, the company announced today.

The
lay-offs are part of a global restructuring plan which the US-based firm
unveiled in January this year.

Kodak
has been hit hard by the shift away from traditional camera film to the use of
digital cameras.
