Scotland / Government sets up mining jobs taskforce

A Scottish government taskforce has been set up to try to retain jobs at a collapsed coal-mining firm.

Scottish Coal, which operated six open cast mines across Scotland, announced nearly 600 redundancies when it went into liquidation last week.

Energy minister Fergus Ewing said the Scottish Open Cast Mining Taskforce would do everything it could to save and create jobs in the sector.

The collapse was blamed on falling coal prices and rising operational costs.
