Feature: MG Rover hits UK aluminium scrap

Scrap merchants selling into the UK secondary aluminium sector will be looking to export more if following the demise of MG Rover, which stopped production and went into administration in April. The secondary smelters' struggle to survive will be hit further as the industry calculates that between 5,000-10,000 tonnes of aluminium castings will be removed from the UK market each year.
