John McDonnell: Boris Johnson has failed Belfast shipyard workers

Shadow chancellor John McDonnell has visited a closure-threatened shipyard in Belfast.

He claimed Boris Johnson had failed the workers in his first real test as Prime Minister.

Mr McDonnell said he was there to express solidarity with the workers.

Harland and Wolff, one of Northern Ireland's most historic brands, is facing closure after its trouble-hit Norwegian parent company Dolphin Drilling failed to find a buyer.
