UK-based Design company WS Atkins is cutting 200 jobs in the Middle East amid a sharp decline in the construction industry.

Most of the job losses are falling within the building design team in Dubai, the company said.

A spokesman said, "Roles will be made redundant in those parts of the Group which are experiencing increasing uncertainty and worsening market conditions and we have deferred our annual salary review for six months."

"We can confirm that in Dubai there have been 170 redundancies."
