Steel group Corus has posted losses of £462 million for the year ending 31 December 2001. In an attempt to halt the slide, the company has put its aluminium business up for sale, which the City expects to fetch £1 billion.

The company made 12,000 redundancies last year. A further 4,000 jobs will be lost over the next two years.
