SUPERMARKET Asda has revealed plans to cut about 200 jobs.

Bosses are making changes as the company rolls out a five-year plan to tackle increasing competition from rival stores and discount chains.

The changes will not affect shop floor staff.

The moves are part of a package of recommendations put forward by consultancy firm McKinsey, which also includes calls for a widening of product ranges.

A spokeswoman said: “In the spirit of openness, we've let our colleagues know that we will be having some more detailed discussions with them this week about a new structure.”

Asda recently announced plans to set up its store expansion and spend £750m on new sites.
