The Prime Minister has told ITV News more financial help could be made available to workers who have lost their jobs at SSI UK.
David Cameron said it is very difficult for the Redcar workforce, but the business had never been out of losses and did not have a secure future,
He also said he is making sure the Communities Secretary, Greg Clark, and Business Secretary, Sajid Javid, do everything they can to help people through the £80 million rescue package, and senior cabinet ministers have been visiting Redcar to listen to workers' concerns.
Speaking to political correspondent Paul Brand, the Prime Minister addressed worries the bulk of the package would go on redundancies, not training opportunities:
New figures show nearly a thousand people who worked for companies that supplied the SSI Redcar have been made redundant since it closed.
A new programme to help find jobs for steelworkers hit by a wave of redundancies will be chaired by the former deputy prime minister.
More than 800 jobs have been lost at Tees Valley firms that supplied the SSI steelworks in Redcar.
