Some staff at Cornish bakers Warrens are being asked to take a pay cut.

More than thirty could give up ten percent of their wages to help the St Just company.

Its new chairman says it has gone through a turbulent few years and insists the money will be paid back at the end of the six month period.

The company says those that have been approached are amongst the most highly paid.

It blames increased competition from rivals but says the plan will safeguard jobs.

After opening 150 years ago in St Just, Warrens now has 440 employees in the southwest.

Around a dozen people have been made redundant over the last year.
