    The French government has urged employees, around 470 people, at the Petit-Couronne refinery in Normandy not to lose hope.

    The owners of their work place, Switzerland's Petroplus, filed for bankruptcy in early last year.

    The firm's administrators rejected all bids for the French site on February 7, saying they are preparing to shut it down and fire all the staff.
