Unions are due to meet steel bosses tomorrow as they try to avert thousands of job losses at the UK’s largest steelworks. There’s been no formal announcement by Tata about the future of Port Talbot – but there are increasing fears that it’s considering shutting down large parts of the plant as soon as March.
