Tales from the coalface

Apparently the mining industry is reported to be "on the up again".

To mark a slight change in the fortunes of an industry that once employed many hundreds of thousands (and caused a range of problems for several governments) The Guardian has produced an article that allows two former miners to recall their days on the coal face.

To read the tales of two ex-miners - Joe Owens and Robert Glyndwr True - and to ponder over how the mining industry can persuade new recruits to go underground - see It's brutal, dirty hard work... by Stephen Moss.
