Another 80 aviation jobs have been cut in the wake of the US terrorist attacks.

A ground service contractor based at Stansted Airport in Essex told unions that workers will be made redundant at the end of the month.

The company, Globe Ground, said it was also reviewing its operations at Manchester Airport, according to the GMB union.

GMB official Ed Blisset said it was "grave news", adding: "Aviation industry workers whose jobs fall victim to the aftermath of the US disaster will need financial help to get through the, hopefully temporary, downturn in the industry."

The company provides services include check-in, ticketing, cleaning and baggage handling.
