Six hundred jobs are at risk after UK Coal today announced the last remaining deep mine in Nottinghamshire will close in 18 months time.
The company says the price of coal on the international market means Thoresby Colliery has been running at a loss for months. Phil Brewster reports.
Nottinghamshire's Thoresby colliery will close by the end of next year at the latest, as part of a phased scaling-down of mines by UK Coal.
The company - the UK's largest coal producer - currently employs 2,000 people across the country, including around 600 at Thoresby.
It is currently in talks for an emergency cash injection of between £10 million and £20 million from the government and the private sector to continue operating until the end of 2015.
It comes after competition from cheap imported coal put pressure on business.
A spokesman for the firm said cutbacks would be made even if the emergency cash is secured.
We have started today consultations with the unions on looking at the way forward - that is, looking at reducing numbers in the coming months.
We are looking to secure the best outcome possible.
