Hundreds of steelworkers, their families and supporters attended a torch-light vigil and rally this evening in Redcar to show support for the steel workers and contractors from SSI Steel after an announcement was made last week that production at the Teesside site was to be paused.
The company, which employs around 2,000 people said they have taken the decision due to ongoing issues with the supply of raw materials and services.
The event was organised by Labour MP Anna Turley and members of the local community in order to raise awareness of the plight of the workers and to remind the government of their continuing struggle to save the steel works.
