It's believed the Newport based steel group have always been confident in their "robust model", regardless of whether the UK voted in or out.

They also say there is now a "stronger case" for a strong, independent, UK owned steel business, following Thursday's vote.

However, Labour MP for Aberavon, Stephen Kinnock, has said the result left "serious concerns" over the future of the steel industry and could affect potential bidders coming forward.

I'm deeply concerned about this result about the future of the steel industry. Uncertainty is the enemy of business and we're looking at an industry which is already battling for survival hanging by a thread in many ways. I'm terribly worried that this vote could be the one that cuts that thread we must now hear from the bidders whether they're staying in and there's rumours that they're not going to be.
