HM Revenue and Customs now has just seven staff in its Huntingdon office, but has not plans to shut up shop in the town.

The other 10 staff who were employed in the Chequers Court office - for which demolition and redevelopment plans have been expected from owners Churchmanor Estates for years - have already moved to other tax offices.

A spokesman for HMRC told The Hunts Post: "The seven staff currently based at Chequers Court run the public enquiry office. They will either stay in the same building or will move to new premises in the town.

"We are always reviewing staff numbers and can if necessary redeploy more if needed. At the moment the plan is to keep a physical presence in the town.

"By bringing staff together in larger teams and closing smaller offices HMRC will be able to deliver a better service to customers while delivering better value for money.
