BAE Systems is to cut 1,775 jobs at its yards in Scotland and England and end shipbuilding altogether at Portsmouth in southern England.

Workers gathered at the sites on Wednesday to hear details of the post closures.

The BBC's Laura Bicker watched as dozens of workers left the Govan site for the day, all refusing to comment on what they had heard inside.
