Tata job losses: "It's devastating for the Port Talbot community"

Our Business Correspondent Carole Green is gathering the reaction in Port Talbot to the job losses at Tata's steelworks.

"It's devastating for the community because it's taking a lot of jobs and a lot of money away from the area" says local business owner Suzanne Hopkins.

"It's going to affect small businesses. A lot of our customers work at Tata Steel and it's going to affect everyone."
