'Dark Cloud Over Teesside' Following SSI Closure

The Minister for Local Growth and the Northern Powerhouse, has told Heart there's a 'dark cloud over Teesside' following the closure of the SSI steelworks in Redcar.

James Wharton, who's also MP for Stockton South, says we should remain optimistic about Teesside's future as "there are a lot of good stories in the North East, with our economy heading in the right direction."
