On the second anniversary of the closure of the SSI steelworks and coke ovens in Redcar, the constituency MP Anna Turley has called for more support for families of ex-steelworkers and contractors who are still struggling.
In the wake of the steelworks closure, the SSI Task Force was set up to support new business start-ups, and to help fund training for former employees.
The government agreed funding packages worth £53m to provide a range of support schemes.
In August this year the Prime Minister Theresa May launched the South Tees Development Corporation, which has been working on plans to redevelop a 4,500-acre stretch of land on the south bank of the River Tees, including the site of the former SSI plant.
It was hoped that this would create thousands of jobs.
