Coal production jobs in Coventry safeguarded

The reshuffle of Britain's biggest coal producer has safeguarded 2,500 jobs across the UK.

UK Coal has split its operations into two businesses after the company, which generates around 5% of Britain's electricity requirements, slumped to a loss in the first half of the year as production at Daw Mill mine near Coventry plunged.

The new reshuffle is said to have safeguarded jobs at the Coventry-based mine.
