Caparo Merchant Bar steel workers to take longer break

More than 150 workers at a North Lincolnshire steel firm are taking an extended Christmas break to help their employer stay in business.

Staff at Caparo Merchant Bar (CMB) in Scunthorpe have agreed to take a longer, partly-unpaid, holiday over the Christmas and new year period.

Workers are being supported by the Community Trade Union in an effort to help the company.

The move aims to ease the company's wage bill in the process.
