    I think I'm right in saying the plant made low quality steel for things like shopping trollies.

    Unless someone is bringing back the Austin Allegro, there would be no car that could be built with such scrap.

    Carbon fibre is more carcinogenic than Asbestos. In a generation's time, its use will be seen as having been a cynical pay off to industrial vampires.

    We will still have Swedish and German steel, so don't worry.

      mention have very strong Trade Unions but, are world leaders in the manufacture of high grade tool steels.Seems like the Unions and the Employers have found a model that really works to the advantage of bother parties.

    No. It will mean more cheap imports from China

    I worked as an overhead crane driver at the Scunthorpe plant for 30 years. Of course I am very concerned for my pension. We rolled the plates for the Royal Navies two new aircraft carriers.
