Tesco is set to axe 400 jobs from its distribution centre in Fenny Lock, Milton Keynes.

An automated picking operation used at the centre will be shut down as part of a review of Tesco's distribution network, but the centre, which employs 1,500 people, will remain open.

"We will support all affected staff through the difficult period ahead and will do as much as possible to find them an alternative role in Tesco,” said a spokesman.
