Sacked workers told they must train Polish before they go

Talk about rubbing salt in wounds.

Twinings, founded in London in 1706 was one of the first companies to introduce tea into Britain, but production at the factory in Tyneside will move to Poland by September 2011.

As if telling the 263 staff they would lose their jobs isn't bad enough, they have been told they must train up their Polish counterparts.

As a tea drinker (I am very partial to Earl Grey) I will now be buying my tea elswhere.
