Keith Prowse unpaid staff
Keith Prowse staff in London are in the same boat as the Keith Prowse staff in Derry - unpaid wages, employee pension contributions not paid into the company pension fund etc You would think that one of the authorities would have picked up that Mr Paul Burns and Mr Rory Burns have been here before. This Group of companies have many smaller companies within the group, maybe that's where they're hiding the cash? Amongst other Keith Prowse/Seatem Group offices still trading is Seatem in Australia - maybe that's where the Burns family will run to once things calm down - after all they've shamed their Mother's memory, their Family and the City of Derry.
We have everything organised
The grainy, night-vision images, will help reassure the families of the men that their loved ones are safe and well.One man proudly shows how they have organized the living room-sized refuge and areas outside the shelter where they can walk around.An animated miner shows where the men meet and pray daily and points out the "little cup to brush our teeth"."We have everything organised," he says.The few items they have are carefully laid out: a first aid cabinet, shelves holding unidentified bottles, mats in a corner for rest.As the camera shows a table with dominoes laid out, the tour guide says that "this is where we entertain ourselves, where we play cards"."We meet here everyday," he adds.

IN LESS than a week, the 33 miners trapped below Chile's Atacama desert will have been stuck underground longer than any others in memory - landing authorities with unique challenges getting them through the four months it may take to free them.The miners have now been informed it could take months to rescue them, Chile's health minister Dr Jaime Manalich said yesterday, as it emerged that anti-depressants were being lowered to the miners to help them cope.A team of submarine commandersADVERTISEMENT has been called in for advice on close-quarters living. the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (Nasa), with its experience of supporting America's astronauts in space, has agreed to assist. Exercise programmes are in place so the men are thin enough to fit through a rescue hole when the time comes to haul them out.It is a huge effort to confront the unique challenges faced by all involved to bring the men out alive.The miners were trapped by a collapse on 5 August. Rescuers established contact on Sunday by drilling a 6in hole to the shelter.
We plan, we have assemblies here everyday so that all the decisions we make are based on the thoughts of all 33."Many of the miners appeared in the video wearing their hard hats. As the camera pans to them, some flash peace signs, wave and smile."Greetings to my family. Get us out of here soon, please," says one unidentified man.At one point the footage shows a close-up of a thermometer reading 29.5 degrees Celsius.The family of one of the miners is suing the mine owners over safety lapses and government inspectors for negligently allowing it to reopen in 2008 following an accident.The San Esteban mining company has warned them that it is considering filing for bankruptcy and may not even be able to pay salaries owed to the miners when they finally emerge.
