Workers take protest to London

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.

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."
