Hundreds of jobs are under threat at a major Doncaster employer.

Rail company DB Schenker, based at Lakeside, Doncaster, is reported to be planning to shed 234 jobs from its sites across the north of England.

The company says the move is due to a fall in the amount of coal being transferred on the rail network.
