Stephen Kinnock waits for Tata's Port Talbot plan response

An action plan to save Port Talbot's steelworks is being discussed by owners Tata Steel in India.

Aberavon MP Stephen Kinnock has joined Community union officials in Mumbai to lobby the board, amid worries the plant could be mothballed.

In January, the plan to cut 1,000 jobs - 750 at Port Talbot - was announced.

The company blamed "extremely difficult market conditions" due to falling European prices caused by cheap imports, particularly from China.

Mr Kinnock said he was waiting for a briefing but the delegation had made their case forcefully in talks on the eve of the meeting.
