Rowecord Engineering, Newport: Hopes steel firm jobs can be saved

Newport-based Rowecord Engineering says its 400 staff could be made redundant.

The roof for the Olympics aquatic centre was among its many high-profile projects.

Brian Godsell, regional co-ordinating officer for the Unite trade union, told Peter Johnson of BBC Radio Wales they were dealing with the collapse of a major company.
