Mark Menzies on BAE job losses


THERE was devastating news for Fylde today as it was announced that more than 800 jobs are set to go at BAE Systems Warton.

The job losses, caused by a slowdown in orders for the Eurofighter Typhoon aircraft from the four nation consortia made up of Germany, Italy and Spain as well as the UK, are a huge blow to Fylde’s economy.

Fylde MP, Mark Menzies, today visited the site to talk to unions, staff and the media.

Here are a selection of links to interviews from today – 27th September.
