One of Cornwall's biggest tourist attractions has announced more job losses in a bid to cut costs.

The Eden Project is axing 15 posts, on top of 53 that went in the new year.

Staff have been told and a consultation is underway.

In a statement, a spokesman for Eden said: "In common with other organisations locally and nationally, the Eden Project is having to reduce its costs further and regrettably this will result in the loss of up to 15 posts.

All those whose jobs are likely to be affected have been informed and a 30-day consultation process has begun.  

Eden Project Ltd went through a major restructure earlier this year to help cut its annual costs by more than £2 million and this resulted in the loss of 53 full-time equivalent (FTE) jobs.

At present the project has 394 FTE posts."
