Almost 200 jobs are to be lost at a call centre in Northern Ireland.

Colorado-based firm Teletech said the jobs would go as its contract to provide European customer support services for car-maker Nissan is set to end.

A spokeswoman for the company said the programme would be "ramped down" between May and July and 197 employees at the north Belfast operation would be affected.

Teletech has been in the city since 2001 and employs about 600 people.
