Coryton workers gather to protest

First published in News by

HORDES of Coryton workers have gathered to protest outside the Vopak terminal over the sale of the oil refinery.

On Saturday morning workers and their families held a demonstration outside tyhe terminal in Purfleet to demand a public inquiry into the sale of the refinery.

The refinery has been sold to a consortium including Vopak, Shell and Greenenergy but the deal will see it turned into an import terminal, meaning most of the 850 jobs provided by Coryton will be axed.
