    The Italian government says it is working hard on a deal to keep Europe's largest steel plant open.

    Owners ILVA have been given five days to comply with an order to begin shutting down operations at the site in the southern Italian city of Taranto.

    Toxic emissions from the plant have been blamed for abnormal levels of tumours and respiratory disease in the region.
