More bad news on the jobs front with upto 5000 jobs going from station and airport retailers SSP. As they've all been closed since March and still massive reductions in footfall at stations, I'd imagine many won't reopen any time soon.

From BBC News:

Upper Crust owner SSP Group says up to 5,000 jobs could be cut across its UK outlets and head office, as it struggles with the reduction in passenger travel.

The firm said global sales in April and May were 95% below the previous year's.

SSP operates 580 food and drink outlets across the UK, mostly at railway stations and airports, but fewer than 10 are currently open.

The company expects only one-fifth of its UK stores to be open by the autumn.

SSP employs around 39,000 staff worldwide across 2,800 outlets. Last month, it said it had suffered "extremely low sales" after the coronavirus pandemic forced it to shut branches.

As well as Upper Crust bakeries, the company also owns the Caffè Ritazza chain, deli operator Camden Food Co. and luxury bar chain Cabin.

SSP joins a growing list of companies slashing jobs as the UK economy suffers its worst contraction in 41 years.
