About 650 jobs will remain at the Kent research and development facility of the pharmaceutical giant Pfizer - 300 more than previously announced. It has emerged that about 800 staff have already left their posts at the Sandwich Discovery Park, with a further 700 still to go by the end of 2012. The company said a further 250 staff had moved to other UK sites. Pfizer announced in February that its operation, which employs 2,400 people, would close. A total of about 1,500 staff will have been made redundant and about 900 staff retained by the end of the process.
