Boris vows nuclear submarine pact will create HUNDREDS of UK jobs as France rages over deal.

Boris Johnson on Thursday hailed the nuclear submarine pact with Australia and the US saying it will create hundreds of highly skilled jobs in the UK.

Addressing MPs in the Commons, the PM denied that the alliance was an 'adversarial' move towards China - which has slammed it as evidence of a Cold War mentality'.

The jubilant comments from Mr Johnson came as ministers admitted it is 'understandable' that France is upset after its $90bn submarine contract with Canberra was torn up.
