Hundreds of jobs are at risk at a Merseyside aircraft parts factory.

UTC Aerospace Systems, which runs the Goodrich Actuation Systems plant in Huyton, has confirmed the proposed closure of the site.

The 350 employees at the site in Stretton Way have been informed about the proposals, UTC said.

A UTC spokesman said the proposals are to "assure continued competitiveness in the marketplace", with work transferred to other UTC Aerospace locations.

He said a formal consultation process with the leadership team and employee representatives had started.
