A Shropshire woman today said she was sacked by bank bosses after posting comments on Facebook about its plans to axe 500 jobs in the county.

Katie Furlong says she was dismissed by the Royal Bank of Scotland yesterday for "misconduct" following a disciplinary hearing.

The 23-year-old, of St Georges, Telford, said she would appeal the decision.

A spokesman for RBS today said they did not comment on individual cases.

Miss Furlong said she had been suspended on full pay after writing on Facebook that while several of her colleagues would be devastated by the news they were to lose their jobs at RBS's Credit Management Services office in Telford by 2012, she was looking forward to the opportunities her four-figure redundancy payment would bring.

Speaking after yesterday's hearing, Miss Furlong said: "My contract has been terminated with immediate effect. It is not a summary dismissal, however, so I will get a month's pay."
