ABOUT 150 more jobs are to be lost at a dock­yard in Fife, bring­ing the to­tal to 400 since Novem­ber.

The ad­di­tional posts are to be cut at Bab­cock Rosyth af­ter the firm spent a num­ber of months re­view­ing its op­er­a­tions.

It was pre­vi­ously an­nounced in Novem­ber that about 250 jobs would be lost at the site.

A Bab­cock spokesman said: “Fol­low­ing a re­view of our cur­rent busi­ness struc­ture we have de­cided to com­bine our en­ergy and ma­rine op­er­a­tions on site into one co­he­sive team to op­ti­mise the per­for­mance of our cur­rent projects and max­imise fu­ture op­por­tu­ni­ties.”
