Paperboy offered £6.93 redundancy


A 13-year-old paperboy in Bedfordshire who takes home £6.53 a week could have been one of the youngest people in the UK to be offered a redundancy package.

Kane Middleton received a formal letter which told him he was being laid off from his round in Clophill.

It outlined a redundancy package of "one week’s pay in lieu of notice, which equates to £6.93 (subject to tax and NI)".

His employer, Letterbox Direct, was unavailable for comment.

Kane said he began his round two months ago to buy treats and a new cage for his hamster, Splodge.

Speaking about receiving the letter, he said: "I got this piece of paper and I didn’t really understand all the words.

"I asked my mum and she told me I had been made redundant.

"I felt annoyed and upset."

His mother Jocelyn said she was disappointed that her son had received an "impersonal" letter.
