'More help needed for steel industry', says Nia Griffith MP

More than a thousand job losses have been announced at Tata steel plants, mostly in south Wales.

The company confirmed 750 jobs would go at Port Talbot and another 300 at steel mills in Llanwern in Newport, Trostre near Llanelli, and at Corby and Hartlepool plants in England.

Unions were called into a meeting with management at 10:00 GMT.

The UK government said it was "meeting key steel industry asks" through cutting energy costs and taking action on imports and EU emissions regulations.

Shadow Welsh secretary Nia Griffith said the UK government had not done enough to help the steel industry.
