NEWSPAPER delivery staff teenagers have been given their jobs back after they were told to go home when they turned up to their shifts.

About 25 paper boys and girls from Wokingham, who delivered on behalf of McColl's newsagents, arrived for their shifts at Brighton's Newsagents on a Sunday morning, only to be told to go home.

Annoyed parents wrote to Brighton's to complain about the miscommunication their son's and daughters have received.

The teenagers were informed they would need to submit an application form back to their manager at McColl's if they wanted to join Brighton's.

However, they claimed they did submit their application form letters but didn't hear anything from the newsagents so carried on their jobs as normal and turned up to work.

After numerous complaints, the paper delivery boys and girls have been given their jobs back.

One mum, who wishes to remain anonymous, said: "They were all offered their jobs back and they were paid by McColl's.

"However, Brighton's has offered my daughter a route closer to home. I have made it clear that I wont be tolerating any nonsense from them."

"I am happy that the situation has been resolved and Brighton's are operating as an ethical and friendly operation."

Brighton's has been contacted for a comment.
