LABOUR leader Johann Lamont launched a new poster campaign focused on the impact of independence on Scotland’s shipyard industry.

She claimed the loss of thousands of shipyard jobs in Scotland would be one of the “real consequences” of a Yes vote in the independence referendum.

Ms Lamont said that while the shipbuilding industry in Scotland had “come through really tough times”, she insisted: “There is a danger that if we vote Yes in September we won’t have a shipbuilding industry any longer, because we’re reliant on these defence contracts.

“These jobs are at risk if we vote Yes, people need to understand that, but for the SNP clearly that’s a price worth paying.”
