A former safety worker at the Turkish mine where 284 people were killed in a mining disaster has told ITV News he quit his job because his safety warnings were being ignored.
Eyip Can spoke out amid growing unrest which saw tear gas and water cannons used to disperse thousands of protesters who had taken to the mining town's streets to condemn mine owners and the government following the disaster.
Anger at Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan intensified with footage emerging of him apparently slapping a protester during his visit to the mine following Tuesday's fatal explosion.
