Worldwide electronics brand Sony is cutting 10,000 staff members during the next year.
Sony announced earlier this year that they had experienced a larger than expected annual loss of £4bn. Due to this, they intend to cut back on staff as part of a major reshuffle.
The losses are due to competition from huge brands including Apple.
Moving forward the company intends to focus and invest in games consoles and mobile devices in a bid to revamp sales.
Almost 1500 people are currently employed by Sony in the UK.
