    The MP said the government was working with BAE Systems to ensure compulsory redundancies are kept to a minimum and he was pleased that the firm had assured workers that job losses would be on a voluntary basis as far as possible:

  17. Is a Yorkshire devolution deal dead?

    Gill Sennett

    BBC Local Live

    After a week of debate over the possibility of Yorkshire devolution, the Northern Powerhouse minister says a "One Yorkshire" deal isn't going to happen.

    Yorkshire flag and union flags

    Both Hull City Council and East Riding of Yorkshire Council have backed a deal for the full county, which would see more decisions made about things like transport funding made here rather than in London.

    Along with 15 other yorkshire councils, Barnsley and Doncaster have also backed that plan after initially favouring a separate deal for South Yorkshire, but Rotherham, Sheffield and Wakefield don't support it.

    Northern Powerhouse minister Jake Berry says because of that, a "One Yorkshire" deal isn't going to happen.
