A global scrap metal recycling firm with headquarters in the North West said it was forced to axe hundreds of jobs during the coronavirus pandemic due to persistent reduced volumes.

European Metal Recycling (EMR), which has sites around the country including in Liverpool and at its Warrington HQ, said due to the “significant material impact” of Covid, it predicts a “bumpy recovery” through next year.
