About: Kellingley Colliery: Britain's last coal mine closes


Two Collieries still working in Neath area of South Wales. So why do they say last Coal mined in UK ?
But we buy Russian or polish coal now!! Wtf
The problem is that they closed the mines but WHY the government didn't create industry or something to give the people where to work, dignified, worthy jobs, worthy salaries. They closed but what happened with so many workers?
Fucking Tory basrards
Tory bastards killed UK industry :-(
What! We buy foreign coal for the power station next door!!
Do we still import coal from Poland??
Good riddance they should have been closed a long long time ago
Sorry but change is the only constant, these people need to learn another trade, easier said that done, I know but that is the way of the world
Tory bastards, closed everything and turned the whole country into a financial economy. So all the money is generated in a small part of London. And we import all the crap we used to make.
Checkout "UAV PAP" Channel for aerial footage of remains of South Wales mines...
What a fucking shame.
RESPECT TO THEM ALL

Going to be some huge regrets for not putting that pit into care so it would have a chance to reopen someday ..
The systematic dismantling of the coal industry is an absolute disgrace, god bless all the miners of Kellingley and all the coal fields of the UK..
Hundreds of years of coal under ground and what do the torys do close them thanks Cameron and that bitch Thatcher we could of ruled the world with coal, but now its no more feel sorry for all the miners well done lads.
The guy at 1:29 is prophetic and is getting right so far " They've just shut pit upon pit after the strike. They'll be next, steel workers. Then power stations then the car workers" . 3 other industries balancing on a knife edge, even more so since the brexit vote.
Wonder if the coal mines open back up now we left the eu
