1,000 jobs lost to India.

UP to 1,000 jobs at Britain's biggest insurance firm are to be moved to India.

Prudential will announce tomorrow it intends to axe 850 call-centre jobs and 150 back-up staff at its base in Reading, Berks.

The work will be handled at a new centre in Mumbai.

Unions fear that this is the "tip of the iceberg" and that 70,000 jobs may be lost to Indian call-centres by the end of the decade.

Roger Lyons, of Amicus, said: "They are double-crossing staff."
