Tata workforce will be 'shocked' if UK sale is confirmed

Steel giant Tata is expected to announce the sale of its loss-making UK business, union sources say.

The decision puts the jobs of thousands of UK workers under threat.

The Indian company held a board meeting in Mumbai on Tuesday at which the decision was made to sell its UK steel operations.

Union leaders had travelled to Mumbai in a bid to persuade Tata to invest in the business, but appear to have failed.

Mark Davies, of the steelworkers' union, Community, told BBC Wales business correspondent Brian Meechan the workforce feel "shock" over any potential sale.
