Labour conference: Union demands 'fight back' over BAE jobs

Delegates at the Labour Party conference have backed a motion demanding that the party fight against almost 3,000 planned jobs losses at BAE Systems.

Put forward by union Unite, it says shadow ministers and Labour MPs must put pressure on the government to "defend key manufacturing jobs".

Unite leader Len McCluskey said "we can't allow the government to sit on its hands whilst our skill base is destroyed."
