Translink has launched a voluntary redundancy scheme in efforts to cut up to 60 jobs.

The public transport firm aims to cut costs by £3.1m annually.

It plans to make some managers and supervisors redundant and cut overhead and administration costs.

Translink said its priority was to protect front-line services.

"I am confident this voluntary exit scheme will achieve the management, overhead and administration cost target we have set ourselves to address the significant government funding cuts in the year ahead of £13m, equivalent to 20% of our funding," Translink director Gordon Milligan said.

"We are briefing staff internally and we are engaged in discussions with the trade unions
