The Uk government r nothing but a bunch of cunts it’s a joke what they have done to the miners
Globalisation has failed us all. Energy companies import foreign coal cheaply loosing our nation jobs in mining and it's supporting industries. The rich 1% who have done this then sell us the electricity making themselves obscene profits whilst we all lose our wealth creating jobs. London stopped caring about working men long ago and now the economy is suffering as we are overtaken by wealth creating nations in Asia.
Us pitmen in Northumbria wud have given a gold pig ti hev conditions as gud as this! High... dry.... hot mind but naebody filling 24tons of coal in a shift wi a big shuul onti a rubber conveyor belt in a two foot high seam!!.. soaking wet!!! Her makeup wud soon be weshed off!
Hot noisy and dangerous to a newsie when ever worked an industrial job in her life what gives someone as sheltered of a life as you the right to judge anyone who prefers this kind of life
Is there anything that could cov2 these people mouths so they will not be breathing in coal dust?
Hi, great video. I have done 2 short movies concerning mining in South Wales area on my Youtube channel "UAV PAP". I hope to do more when time and weather permits.
Did Daw mill not hold the record for the biggest production pit in uk? 3.25m tonnes per year.

I can see the Daw mill site from my bedroom window and it's gone and they want to replace it with a container depot.

UK coal were hammered for killing 4 miners in 2006/7 safety breaches on the part of uk coal.

After the fines there was a miraculous Fire at Daw Mill so the closed the pit when there was still an estimated 56million tonnes of coal underground.

And yet now we have to buy in coal from abroad what a kick in the nuts for all the hardworking generations who went underground to extract coal in UK
my utopia surrounded by one of the things I love with orange Hi-vis overals and safety glasses and a black face😎 and I know it sounds wierd but I have been surrounded by minding for the 13 years I have been alive for.
I'd get a job there. But I live far from yorkshire sadly
There happy working there mashines are making it worse less jobs
what a laugh... look at the accident statistics in the places where we now import coal from, poland china ect a lot higher than in the uk. but i will stress no death is worth a job in any industry..
