A FACEBOOK group calling for BAE Systems to rethink its decision to make job cuts in Portsmouth has gained more than 750 supporters within two hours of being set up.

The page on the social network, called Save Portsmouth Shipyard, has gained momentum as the news of 940 job losses has spread over the internet.

One resident, Emily Davis, wrote on the site: ‘The Pompey PM is gonna try lobbying government I read somewhere, but I suppose it’s one way people can be heard though by doing this.’
