Construction has begun on a huge "frigate factory" in Glasgow which will be able to build two Royal Navy warships simultaneously under cover.

The new build hall at the Govan shipyard on the river Clyde is being constructed by BAE Systems as part of a £300m investment to its facilities.

Once complete it will improve working conditions and stop shipbuilding being affected by adverse weather conditions.

BAE Systems has a contract to build five more Type 26 ships.
