BT is to cut around 13,000 jobs across the UK, but has not said how Kent employees could be affected.

The communications firm has large offices next to Sevenoaks railway station, as well as in Sidcup and Crawley.

They announced the cuts on Friday [May 11] as the firm looks to cut costs by around £1.5billion, despite pre-tax profits rising 11 per cent last year.

Analysts have said the firm, which is progressing in its digital and televised sport operations, needed to streamline to pursue projects.

At the most recent analysis, BT had 106,400 employees.

A spokesperson, said: 'We will reduce the number of offices we have in the UK over the coming years, developing a network of 30 modern workplaces across the country.

'There are no details yet of what this means for individual locations around the country.'
