Workers at Coryton oil refinery in Essex had another blow today, with the news that the Government won't be propping up the plant with public money.
The Department for Energy and Climate Change has decided not to apply to the European Commission to use state funds to bail it out.
850 jobs have been at risk since the refinery went into liquidation in January. The plant supplies about a fifth of London and the South East's fuel.
