Tata Steel: Carwyn Jones promises support after job losses

More than 1,000 jobs are to go at Tata steel plants, mostly in south Wales.

Tata said 750 jobs would go at Port Talbot, while Llanwern in Newport and Trostre at Llanelli would share 100 job losses with two plants in England. Another 200 jobs will go in support functions.

The company said "tough actions are critical in the face of extremely difficult market conditions".

First Minister Carwyn Jones described the job cuts as a "devastating blow" to the community and the wider economy.
