181 jobs go at Unity Mine, say administrators

Administrators appointed to the largest drift mine in Wales have announced 181 workers have been made redundant.

Unity Mine, near Neath, filed for administration three weeks ago.

Administrators Cork Gully LLP said with the right investment the mine "will be able to secure long-term viability" and added they had received a high level of inquiries from potential investors.

About 30 staff will stay on maintaining the mine but Neath MP Peter Hain said the redundancies were a "savage blow".
