Workers at BAE Systems in Lancashire are facing an anxious wait over their futures.

Up to three thousand jobs could go at two sites - including Warton in Lancaster.

It's all because of big government cuts to defence spending.

The firm - which makes Typhoon fighter jets -  issued a statement suggesting production 'will be slowed.'

It's expected to make an annoucement next week.

The announcement follows previous cuts announced at Woodford in Stockport.
