Delegation to lobby parliament over Bombardier case

More than 200 people have travelled to London to fight for the future of Derby-based trainmaker Bombardier.

The delegation will urge the government to reverse its decision to hand the £1.4bn Thameslink deal to a rival firm.

The supporters have gone to the capital as the Transport Select Committee debates the handling of the contract.

Unions will tell the transport select committee that thousands of jobs are at risk after Bombardier missed out on the work.

John Moylan reports.
