Bombardier 'already planned job cuts'


The Canadian train maker Bombardier has announced it will cut up to 2,000 jobs at its Derby plant, after it lost a contract to make new trains for the Thameslink service to the German company Siemens.

Anthony Bartram reports from Derby where staff are "very let down".

And Transport Secretary Philip Hammond explains why it was the "correct" decision within the contract structure.
