The Business Secretary is to visit the giant Port Talbot steelworks today as he returned from a meeting with the plant's owners at Tata Steel to press them for time to find a buyer.

Sajid Javid confirmed he was on his way to South Wales, where he is expected to meet managers and workers' representatives for the second time in a week.

Mr Javid, who has been criticized for failing to recognise the crisis engulfing the UK steel industry, also visited the plant last Friday.

He had cut short a business trip to Australia when Tata announced it was looking to sell.

Mr Javid said Tata's sale process will start by Monday, although there was no set time frame for it to be completed.

Tata steel has had no contact with senior government ministers since they announced they were selling its UK assets, ITV News has learned.

Correspondent Romilly Weeks told News At Ten: "Incredibly sources within Tata are telling us that they have had no contact, at this crucial juncture for the British steel industry, with any senior government ministers today."

The British side of Tata Steel is currently losing £1 million a day and could close altogether if a buyer - or several buyers - are not found soon.

Shadow Chancellor: the government must act swiftly on Tata

Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell says the government needs to act immediately to take a public stake in the steel sector in the wake of Tata's decision to sell off its UK businesses.

He says we need to work with our European partners to protect against the dumping of Chinese steel on the international market as part of a long term strategy to make the UK market viable.
