Tata's Port Talbot steelworks in possible management buyout - Sky News | Reuters

Managers at Tata's Port Talbot steelworks have been briefed about a potential management buyout plan, Sky News said on Tuesday, citing sources.

In March, the embattled steelmaker put its entire UK business up for sale to stem heavy losses. (bit.ly/1VCnyJB)

Tata Steel earlier this month agreed to sell its Long Products Europe division in Scunthorpe to Greybull for 1 pound, saving a third of the 15,000 jobs placed in jeopardy by the Indian conglomerate's decision to sell up in Britain.

The steelmaker has been hit by falling prices due to overcapacity in China, which is the world's biggest market for the alloy.

Tata Steel said it was not publicly naming or confirming any potentially interested investors or bidders.
