  1. £60m bomb boost for Raytheon

    MILITARY: An arms maker got a boost on Tuesday when the government said it would spend another £60 million on “precision” bombs.

    Air force pilots used the Paveway IV bombs to devastate Libya last year and they are also used in Afghanistan.

    The contract will secure 450 jobs at weapons giant Raytheon UK, which makes the bombs in Glenrothes, Scotland, and Harlow in Essex.
