Llanwern steel works to axe 115 jobs

A hot strip mill at a huge steel plant is to be mothballed because of "continuing poor demand", with the loss of 115 jobs, it has been announced.

Tata Steel said the temporary mothballing of the mill at its Llanwern site in Newport, will take immediate effect.

The move will lead to the loss of 115 agency workers, contractors and others on fixed-term contract jobs.
