The downturn in the UK steel industry has caused a ripple effect across the economy in recent months with thousands of job losses at high-profile steel companies.
Despite the positive announcement on 11th April that part of Tata Steel's operations would be purchased by Greybull Capital, safeguarding 4,000 jobs, thousands of other steelworkers and businesses have suffered - or are expected to suffer - financially from the industry's decline.
The knock-on effect of the UK steel crisis, which has largely centred around major manufacturing firms in north-east England, central Scotland and south Wales, has been so widespread that some individuals have filed for bankruptcy and some businesses caught up in the supply chain have subsequently gone under.
