Prime Minister David Cameron has said the government is "doing everything it can" to try to secure the future of steel making in Port Talbot and elsewhere in the UK but has warned "there can be no guarantees of success".

After the meeting Cameron also tweeted that workers and their families would remain a "priority" while trying to find a solution to the current steel industry crisis.
Workers and their families face a worrying time, and our priority is to help those likely to be affected.
During this process, we are committed to working with the Welsh gov't and Tata on a long term sustainable future for British steel making.
