Port Talbot job cuts by Tata Steel 'devastating'

Three generations of Port Talbot resident Belinda Newtown's family have worked at the local steelworks.

She describes how the loss of around 600 jobs at some of Tata Steel's plants in south Wales will affect the community.

"Everybody will be affected from small businesses, even the local paper shop," she said during an interview on BBC Radio Wales.

"It is devastating. We just can't believe it," she said, adding that the timing could not be worse with Christmas approaching.
