The Body Shop ethical cosmetics chain has announced 275 job losses worldwide - about 150 of them in the UK.

The firm, which has its main UK bases in London and Littlehampton, says the cuts will not affect individual stores or store staff.

The Body Shop was founded by the entrepreneur and campaigner Dame Anita Roddick, who died in September 2007.

The company was sold to French cosmetics giant L'Oreal in March 2006 for 652m ($1.14bn).
