    Chief executive Warren East warned that most of the cuts could fall in the UK as it embarks on a “major reorganisation”.

    The FTSE 100 company is based in Derby and employs 52,000 people globally. Mr East warned it could close factories outright as it faces up to a drop in demand for its jet engines over the next few years because of travel restrictions.
