The move is part of a larger plan expected to save the company up to £120 million by 2012, but has been criticised by the Communication Workers Union.

Virgin Media says cutbacks will help it compete more effectively, and follows a company-wide analysis that began in early 2008.

However, the company was quick to deny that the cuts are due to financial pressures in a struggling economy. Instead, claims Virgin, the job losses are part of a restructuring plan arising from the 2006 acquisition of the newly merged ntl:Telewest.
