Scotland's First Minister - Alex Salmond - today met with the workforce at Ferguson Shipyard in Port Glasgow.
The yard went bust last week with the loss of 70 jobs following cash-flow difficulties and a lack of orders.
He listened to their concerns during the meeting with shop stewards and employees.
Mr Salmond once again vowed that Ferguson’s would be saved.
I understand that the administrators are considering three bids for the yard.
Hopefully a buyer can be found from the bids submitted and shipbuilding in Inverclyde can continue and go on to further success.
