UTV parent company ITV will slash £25m in costs next year as a direct result of Britain's decision to quit the European Union.

The broadcaster said it has put in place a "robust plan" to meet the challenges Brexit is set to pose.

The company has already announced 12 job losses outside the newsroom at UTV in Havelock House following the sale of UTV Media plc's TV division.

It no longer uses make-up artists but broadcasters instead apply their own - a system which ITV has said "works very well" in ITV's English and Welsh regions.

A spokeswoman for ITV said it would be discussing its plans "with our teams" over the weeks to come.
