BAE job losses

27/09/11

Defence company BAE Systems has today confirmed it will shed 3,000 jobs across the country.

The job losses are mainly expected to come in its military aircraft division.

Union officials have blamed the government, saying that defence cuts have delivered a "hammer blow" to manufacturing.

However the largely disappointing sales of BAE's Eurofighter jet are also thought to have contributed.
