"Former Glasgow shipyard union leader Jimmy Reid has died at the age of 78.
Mr Reid led a successful work-in at the Upper Clyde Shipbuilders (UCS) in 1971 which thwarted the Tory government's attempts to close the yards.
The one-time Communist Party member later moderated his views, and stood for Labour in the 1979 election.
After failing to win the Dundee East seat he became a respected journalist and broadcaster, and joined the SNP in 2005 after losing faith with Labour."
An amazing man actually. R.I.P
