Workers at risk of losing their jobs at a Rolls-Royce site near Coventry have been offered potential opportunities at a nearby engineering firm. Alstom in Rugby wants to recruit at least 50 engineers, scientists and project managers.

Rolls-Royce announced earlier this month it was planning to reduce its workforce at its plant in Ansty.

Unions claim nearly 400 jobs could be at risk.
