Hot metal: Cardiff's Celsa recycles scrap into steel

Steelmakers are calling for action to stop foreign steel flooding into the UK which they blame for the industry stagnating.

Producers Tata and Celsa employ more than 7,500 people across Wales.

Steel is a major component in the construction industry so both were badly hit by the recession and 400 jobs went at Tata last year.

BBC Wales business correspondent Brian Meechan went behind the scenes at the Celsa plant in Cardiff, which produces all its steel from recycled scrap metal.

It employs 725 of its 1,000-strong Welsh workforce.
