STAFF at a Liverpool hotel walked out after managers were told their jobs were being scrapped.

Around 15 management staff at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Liverpool John Lennon Airport, were yesterday told they were at risk of redundancy and asked to reapply for a smaller number of jobs, the ECHO understands.

It is believed employees were told they were entering a 14-day period of consultation.

A relative of one of the affected workers, who did not want to be named, said: "Everything has been restructured and basically the current roles don't exist.

"They've been told they can reapply for new jobs, but there are fewer of those and some of their jobs won't exist any more.

"Staff were told in the morning and they were in floods of tears. A lot of them walked out."

Owners Kew Green Hotels refused to confirm the move.

General manager Philip Dickson said: "We at Crowne Plaza Liverpool - John Lennon Airport, always ensure we have the right people resources for our hotel's business requirements.

"We are currently consulting with our employees for the best way forward."
