Research Machines - the consortium which runs Dudley MBC's schools IT business - has been forced to sack nearly 100 staff.

The redundancies are described as 'belt-tightening measures' by the council's contract manager Geoff Baker.

Mr Baker said: 'We are happy this will not adversely affect the level of service. The system seems to be better than ever.'

The firm supplies IT equipment to schools, colleges and universities across the UK.

A spokeswoman for the firm said: 'These were not voluntary redundancies.

'However, they only account for 7% of the workforce and were basically people who worked in administration and accounts.'
