Mayors in the towns and cities concerned have already been informed that hundreds of jobs will be lost in their areas, the magazine says.

Centres in Cologne and Mönchengladbach will be shut down, as four of the nine centres in North Rhine-Westphalia close.

Only those call centres with between 400 and 900 employees will remain open.

A spokesman said on Sunday that the strategy was one of consolidation, and said that those workers affected would be offered a comparable one elsewhere.
