Tata Steel: Liberty 'would not look to lose anybody'

A potential buyer for Tata Steel in the UK believes he could take over all the business without mass job losses.

Sanjeev Gupta, the head of the Liberty Group said he had "very encouraging" talks with the UK Government so far but there was still a lot of work to do.

Mr Gupta told the BBC he believed jobs at Port Talbot could be saved if at least 700 workers in its blast furnaces were retrained.

He now wants detailed talks with Tata and ministers.
