BAE jobs threatened

How many jobs are in jeopardy at BAE Systems in Brough in East Yorkshire, after today's deal to sell 22 Hawk trainers to the Saudis?

1300 people work at Brough, including manufacturing and testing.

Brough was under threat as a manufacturing site, with work likely to stop in 2013.

Last year 865 jobs were pencilled to go.

Today 218 manufacturing jobs are saved for an extra 2 years, until mid-2015

118 job losses have already been "mitigated" through transfers and early retirement.

73 further people could be helped by offers of transfers to Warton and Samlesbury

The bulk of the work on the 22 Hawks announced today will be done at Warton and Samlesbury, but some will go to Brough
