120 jobs axed at steel giant Tata

Tata is cutting 120 jobs in the West Midlands under plans to improve competitiveness.

The firm said a total of 900 jobs will be axed nationwide, 580 in Wales, 155 in Yorkshire, 120 in the West Midlands and 30 in Teesside.

Sites will close in South Wales while shift levels at the company's Rotherham and Hartlepool plants will be reduced to match production to lower demand for bar products and pipelines.
