Shadow Cabinet Minister and Middlesbrough MP

:00:49.:00:53.

Andy McDonald told BBC's Sunday Politics that the Government

:00:54.:00:56.

obviously didn't have a clear strategy for steel

:00:57.:00:58.

This is a stark admission that the Government didn't respond

:00:59.:01:05.

The Italian government did, German and French governments

:01:06.:01:11.

stepped in and didn't breach state aid rules.

:01:12.:01:17.

Those jobs could have been saved and there could have been a much

:01:18.:01:19.

But the Conservative peer Martin Callanan said it

:01:20.:01:26.

wasn't viable to bail out the steel industry.

:01:27.:01:29.

And he said the Government's new industrial strategy

:01:30.:01:32.

offered a way forward for areas like Teesside.

:01:33.:01:37.

:01:56.:01:58.

36-year-old Kevin Woods first went went missing from his home

:01:59.:02:01.

in October last year, prompting a big police search.

:02:02.:02:04.

His body was finally discovered yesterday

:02:05.:02:07.

in a lake at the Quarry in Crawcrook.

:02:08.:02:10.

The police believe no-one else was involved in his death.

:02:11.:02:14.

Cumbria needs to rethink the way it bids for Government funding,

:02:15.:02:17.

according to one of the team responsible

:02:18.:02:20.

The county was recently awarded just 7.5%

:02:21.:02:26.

of the 165 million it asked for under the Government's

:02:27.:02:30.

That included proposals for 25 million to

:02:31.:02:36.

The Government says the county has already received many millions

:02:37.:02:40.

of pounds for defences through other schemes.

:02:41.:02:42.

The Local Enterprise Partnership says it's disappointed.

:02:43.:02:51.

This is not small change. They shipped the figures that would make

:02:52.:02:58.

differences to Cumbria and its economic opportunities in the

future. Thousands of people gathered
