The future of hundreds of jobs at Maltby Colliery hang in the balance after it was announced that redundancy notices will be served on miners.

Around 540 workers at the pit are to be issued with 90-day statutory notice by owners Hargreaves Services.

Bosses are awaiting the results of a detailed study of geological, financial and health and safety risks at the colliery, which was hit by water, oil and gas leaking into new workings earlier this year.
