Recorded £4.6bn loss for Rolls-Royce from past bribery, corruption and weak pound
Rolls-Royce has recorded a £4.6bn loss as the aero-engine firm absorbs the effect of its £671m settlement with regulators for past bribery and corruption. It is also battling a weaker pound. Alongside this Rolls-Royce reported plans to launch its first fleet of crewless ships by 2020. The move has been criticised by workers' unions and analysts, who have voiced concerns over the impact on jobs and the reduction in protection from privacy. Joining Nigel Cassidy to discuss the trials and tribulations of Rolls-Royce is Gaurav Sharma, Business Editor with the International Business Times.
