Redcar worker: 'We're all devastated'

Iron and steel making at the Redcar plant on Teesside is to be mothballed, with the loss of 1,700 jobs.

The plant is owned by the Thai company, SSI, and was mothballed by its previous owner Tata Steel in 2010.

Worker John Muirhead described the announcement as "heartbreaking".
