UK manufacturing sector could see 140,000 job cuts in the year because of the economic downturn, the Engineering Employers Federation (EEF) said on Monday.

The engineering and manufacturing body, which surveyed 782 firms, forecast that manufacturing output would fall by 8.6% in 2009 and grow only 0.2% in 2009. Engineering output is set to shrink by 10.9% this year and rise by 0.9% next year.
