Unions say they'll fight Ford over its plans to close its factory in Southampton.

The company confirmed yesterday it was shutting the plant. Five hundred people work at the site.

Ford says they'll be offered positions at other locations.

Southampton City Council is due to hold an emergency meeting today to discuss the job losses.
