A Chinese firm has completed its takeover of British Steel.

Jingye Group said that yesterday's move would save more than 3,000 jobs in Scunthorpe and Teesside and it would modernise the towns' steelworks.

The firm reportedly offered £50m to buy the company after it collapsed and was placed under the control of the UK Insolvency Service last year.

Unions have said that although the deal "must be celebrated", about 450 workers still face losing their jobs.

British Steel employed about 5,000 people at the time of its collapse, and is the second-largest steelmaker in the country.

 

Police are warning members of the public to remain vigilant after a number of reports of a skimming devices on ATM machines in the Linthorpe area of Middlesbrough.

In recent weeks officers have received a number of reports of skimming devices at the Post Office on Chipchase Road.

Most recently there was an incident reported at the Co-op on Linthorpe Road.

Anyone with information is asked to call Cleveland Police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
