McCluskey calls on government to save steel industry

The leader of the Unite union, Len McCluskey, has called on the government to save the steel industry, as hundreds of steelworkers marched through Westminster to highlight the crisis.

The board of Tata Steel is meeting in Mumbai but has yet to draw up a shortlist of potential buyers for its UK assets.

Thousands of jobs are at risk, with the Port Talbot plant in south Wales facing closure if a buyer cannot be found.

The issue still has to be resolved. We want a secure, guaranteed future for a foundation industry that is vital for our nation.

The whole of our manufacturing depends on British steel and I'm pleased that the government appear to be getting that message, but we want to make certain that those warm words are turned into positive action.

– Len McCluskey, Unite
