Hundreds of jobs will go at a Warwickshire coal mine hit by an underground fire last month, owner UK Coal has announced. After the blaze at Daw Mill Colliery on 22 February, UK Coal warned that mining might not be able to resume. The company now says a small team will remain on site to secure the mine over the coming months, but the majority of its 650 staff will be made redundant. [From Mark Bartlett]
