BOSSES in Wearside are more likely to give their staff a day off for the Royal wedding than their southern counterparts, new research has revealed.

 The latest Business Barometer from Close Invoice Finance found that just over 60 per cent of employers in the region planned to close the office on April 29, compared with just over half of business owners in the South East.

 At a UK-wide level, Scotland emerged as the most reluctant region to embrace the holiday, with only one in three willing to recognise it as such.

 As it stands businesses are under no obligation to give workers the day off.
