The strike failed for many reasons
The unions did not have a ballot as a whole and this was a legal requirement so some miners continued to work thus setting miner against miner.
The only support miners had was from Yorkshire, Scotland, Wales and Kent. Very little support came from the North West and Midlands
Strikes began in the spring time when the demand for coal was low. Had it been Winter demand would have been greater.
The public did not support the miners.
The media was involved and shaped the thoughts of the public in favour of the government.
The government had prepared in advance and so had impoted and stockpiled coal from abroad.

Look up Arthur Scargill, he was a socialist who ran Britain's trades unions and many say the failure of the miners strike had a lot to do with his bad leadership!
