Rolls-Royce face lawsuit
Two former employees have told a US court that Rolls-Royce "cut corners on quality control requirements" and "lied to" customers.
The BBC has reported that in a US lawsuit the pair also alleged that the firm "routinely used defective parts designated as 'scrap only'".
According to reports in the Financial Times and the Daily Telegraph, the lawsuit filed by former employees Thomas McArtor and Keith Ramsey alleges that the engine maker concealed internal records of defects in engines sold to clients.
Rolls-Royce has defended itself and said the lawsuit is "without merit".
