Anglesey Aluminium go bust because of energy bills

We have just heard that Anglesey Aluminium have just closed down because they haven't been able to agree a deal for their electricity costs with the local nuclear power station. This terrible news might be part of the first wave of failures because of energy costs rather than straight forward business.

They are part owned by Rio Tinto who are having their own problems at the moment along with the other miners, but it demonstrates that energy security is a key issue that cannot be taken for granted in the future.
