600 jobs have been secured at BAE sites in Warton and Samlesbury sites in Lancashire.

The defence giant has received a five-year, £446 million contract to provide a range of engineering support services for the fleet of Typhoon jets.

"This contract is great news for BAE Systems and for the Eurofighter programme as a whole. Over a five-year period the contract will deliver significant savings to the customer and will ensure that we have the skills, capabilities and funding in place to support Typhoon users across Europe."
