Darren speaks to BBC Bristol about GKN

GKN employ 59,800 people, including 1,900 at their Bristol sites. Their Aerospace division is vital to UK defences, and to other UK Aerospace businesses who rely on their supplies.

A week ago, GKN lost a shareholder vote on a Melrose hostile takeover. Melrose are a US firm who are know to buy and quickly liquidate businesses, meaning that thousands of GKN jobs could be at risk.

Darren spoke to BBC Bristol about what he was doing about this, in the face of a government not willing or able to intervene in the takeover despite economic and defence interests at risk.
