Halls task force: more than words

Help

The 1,700 workers at the Halls of Broxburn meat products plant have heard there is another chance their factory will survive, but not at full capacity.

A task force led by the Scottish government have met the parent company and all agreed to a few days grace while one last attempt is made to secure a buyer for the plant as a going concern.

Even if that works out, some job losses seem inevitable. BBC Scotland's Jamie McIvor reports on what can be expected of a government-sponsored task force in this sort of situation. Can it offer any more than kind words?
