Airbus job fears for Wales
 
Around 7,000 jobs at risk in Wales
 
Thousands of Airbus workers in Newport and Brougton in North Wales face an uncertain future if there isn't a good Brexit deal.
 
The plane maker says it'll move thousands of jobs from the UK as it wants goods to move freely between Britain and Europe after we leave the EU.
 
But Welsh Secretary Alun Cairns has told us he's staying positive:
 
' We're optimistic and confident we'll get to a good trading arrangement.
 
 
I'm not surprised by what Airbus has done and said, but I'm optimistic it won't get to that.
 
They're preperaring for a no deal arrangement, we expect to get a deal.'
 
Airbus emlpoys around a thousand people in Newport.
