Scotland powers ahead building a new class of warship for the Royal Navy.

Work has officially started on a £1.25bn project to build five new warships for the Royal Navy.

United Kingdom Defence Secretary Ben Wallace cut the first steel for the first Type 31 frigate – HMS Venturer – due to be built by Babcock at Rosyth in Fife.

The fleet’s construction will support about 1,250 highly skilled jobs at Babcock and lead to an additional 150 apprenticeships.

It is also expected to support a further 1,250 UK supply chain roles.
