    Tens of thousands of jobs are at risk with the collapse of the UK construction and services giant, Carillion.

    The company is involved in a vast range of infrastructure and services contracts, and the announcement that it has been forced into liquidation means uncertainty for the future of several flagship construction projects.

    The British government says it will ensure there's no disruption to public services, but there are calls for a public inquiry.

    Al Jazeera's Paul Brennan reports from London.
