Hundreds of people have signed a petition to save Kellingley Colliery.

Pontefract and Castleford MP Yvette Cooper was out rallying support for the petition on Saturday morning in Knottingley.

Ms Cooper’s petition says: “We call on UK Coal and the Government to do everything possible to find a solution to the current crisis before the first round of layoffs on 23rd May 2014 including working with other investors and the European Commission to get a deal that would keep the pit open beyond 2015.”
