There were protests on the streets of London today as hundreds of workers from BAE Systems travelled to the capital in the hope that it might save more than 800 jobs.
The aerospace giant announced last year that it was closing the manufacturing facility at its Brough site, leaving just a few hundred jobs.
BAE workers are protesting in Westminster. They have also been meeting with MPs. The site in Brough is due to close next year.
A protest by BAE workers, including hundreds from the site in Brough, has started in Westminster. It is taking place as the company holds its Annual General Meeting.
David Davis MP has called the plans by BAE as "short-sighted and short-termist as any Victorian capitalist you can think of."
Alan Johnson MP says: "Never been involved in a battle which is more just."
Workers from BAE Systems in Brough are in London to protest over the planned closure of the site outside the company's AGM. They have had special t-shirts made for it.
