They say the takeover of the Woodsmith Mine at Sneaton, near Whitby, has affected many Sirius shareholders, with many eager for news of any possible legal redress.

The campaigners say: "Sirius Minerals grew from nothing via Yorkshire Potash into a billion-pound market cap company before it collapsed and was taken over by Anglo American, at what many felt was far too low a price.

"This webinar will review what happened, the potential for legal claims and the lessons learned."
