Carillion employees 'come into work'

Construction giant Carillion is to go into liquidation, threatening thousands of jobs.

The move came after talks between the firm, its lenders and the government failed to reach a deal to save the UK's second biggest construction company.

But Minister for the Cabinet Office David Lidington urged employees to come into work today. He told the Today programme the money to pay them is still there.
