Suppliers of the SSI steel plant make hundreds redundant

Figures gathered by the SSI task force show that hundreds of jobs have been lost in the supply chain since Teesside's steel plant shut down.

The task force has identified more than 200 companies in the Tees Valley were supplying SSI before it closed, and 24 of those companies have already had to make 834 people redundant.

Neil Doyle, director of Peterson Engineering in Dormanstown, said large scale redundancies in the surrounding area were inevitable.
