Margam opencast site not used since 2008
A mining firm should accept moral responsibility for restoring two opencast sites, say politicians following the collapse of a fraud case.
Celtic Energy transferred ownership of mines at Margam, near Port Talbot, and East Pit in Amman Valley to a firm in the Caribbean.
The Serious Fraud Office had accused six people, including two former directors of the firm, of trying to avoid paying the restoration costs.
But a judge threw out the case.
Here is footage of the opencast site at Margam, which has not been in operation since 2008 and has filled with water.
