SIPRI's Aude Fleurant on the increase in arm sales in the UK
New figures show that the arm sales industry in the UK last year increased 2.8%. BAE Systems, the biggest manufacturer here in the UK and third biggest worldwide saw sales rise to 25.5 billion dollars, in part from Typhoon combat aircraft exported to Saudi Arabia. Share Radio's James Brydges has been speaking to Aude Fleurant, from the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, that compiled the figures.
