Defence giant BAE Systems has axed almost 2,000 jobs amid a slowdown in orders for its flagship Typhoon jet.

The FTSE 100 firm said that the job losses, which were almost double the expected number, were to go as part of a restru cturing effort intended to streamline the business with analysts noting in the run-up to this morning's update that progress in its US division was likely to be offset in the future by its decelerating UK business.

The bulk of the losses are expected to affect BAE's Warton factory in Preston, Lancashire, and, after initially dropping on the news, the firm's shares are now largely unchanged.
