Marks and Spencer, the British retail chain store - selling clothes and food, is to cut around 7,000 jobs as the coronavirus pandemic increasingly pushes customers to shop online. The job cuts, are planned to be carried out over the next three months. Marks employs more than 80,000 staff, of whom the vast majority work in the UK. Official data last week showed that Britain's economy shrank by one fifth in the second quarter, more than any European neighbour, as the lockdown plunged the country into its deepest recession on record.
