Mr Sargeant added:
“We’re protesting against the UK Tory Government’s complete mismanagement and lack of action on the steel crisis.
“Steel is integral to this country – for tens of thousands of people’s livelihoods, for our economy, for our national security. The Tory Government has had months to act on this – where has Alun Cairns been until now?
“We’ll be showing our solidarity for the Shotton plant, a profitable plant that deserves a bright future.”
