Nervous steel: What future for the industry in Europe?

What does the future hold for the steel industry in Europe? European producers have long complained of being undercut by state-subsidised imports from China. Thousands of jobs have been lost in the industry in recent months.

But the country's biggest steelworks in Wales isn't part of that agreement.

Also in this programme:

  • Hard talk on hard currency: does the banknote still have a place in a world of contactless payment?
  • Plus, we tell you how one Spanish company is turning marine trash into high-end clothing.
