Port Talbot steelworkers confront Sajid Javid over Tata jobs crisis

Mayor of London candidate Sajid Javid speaks to steel works

Workers at the country's biggest steel plant demanded answers from the Business Secretary when they confronted him about the crisis gripping their industry.

Sajid Javid made a flying visit to Port Talbot in South Wales after cutting short a business trip to Australia to deal with a shock decision by Tata to sell its loss-making UK assets.

As he left a meeting inside the plant, a group of banner waving steelworkers asked him what the Government was doing to save the industry.

He said the Government was on their side, adding that steel was "absolutely vital" to the UK's industrial sector.
