UK defence company BAE Systems is to cut up to 3000 jobs in the north of England. The news has been expected by employees since the public spending cuts were introduced.

The announcement of the final figures was met with anger from union bosses, who were critical of the length of time that members had to wait for confirmation, as well as the government's decisions involving slashing defence spending.

Labour's Yvette Cooper said that the news was "devastating", referring to the importance of highly-skilled jobs in the area that were being lost.
