Scotland's First Minister Alex Salmond has begun talks with the Unite union over how to save 800 jobs at the Grangemouth petrochemical factory, which its owners plan to close.
Mr Salmond is negotiating with Unite General secretary Len McCluskey and Unite's Scottish secretary Pat Rafferty. Mr McCluskey said earlier the union had decided to embrace a survival plan for the plant "warts and all".
Grangemouth owners Ineos are in last ditch talks with the workers' union, but the workforce is just one of the problems facing the plant.
Thousands of jobs are under threat after a dispute over conditions led to a shock decision to close the petrochemical site in Grangemouth.
