BAE Systems have outlined proposals to cut more than 600 jobs at sites across the UK and close its Newcastle factory, where tanks were made for WWI.

The firm said the proposals, now under consultation, followed major efficiency improvements and reductions in orders required by the Ministry of Defence.
