Steel firm Rowecord Engineering workers fear for jobs

Workers at Wales' biggest steel contractor fear for the future of their jobs after the collapse of the firm.

Newport-based Rowecord Engineering, which employed around 400, built the roof of the Olympic aquatic centre.

Administrators Grant Thornton say a number of workers will be kept on in the short term to complete work in progress.

They also warn that Rowecord's problems could have a knock-on effect on its suppliers along the M4 corridor.

BBC Wales business correspondent Nick Servini reports.
