Marks & Spencer is closing one of its distribution centres in September, putting 450 jobs at risk, the retailer announced on Tuesday.
The facility at Hardwick Grange, near Warrington in Lancashire, will shut as part of a five-year transformation of M&S’ business.

Credit Ahn Young-Joon/Associated Press SEOUL, South Korea — Kim Jong-un, North Korea’s leader, plans to formally announce his willingness to denuclearize his country when he meets with President Moon Jae-in of South Korea this month, an official from the South said on Tuesday.

They are still discussing other aspects of the joint statement, such as whether the two Koreas would commit to holding further summit meetings on a regular basis, Mr. Im said. South Korea is also trying t..
