    The Spanish airline Iberia is to cut four and a half thousand jobs - a quarter of its workforce. Its parent company, International Airlines Group, says the aim is to save the company which is "struggling for survival".

    A deadline has been fixed for the end of January to agree a restructuring plan with the unions - otherwise, warns the company, even more drastic cuts will be implemented.
