Hundreds of steelworkers from across the country are marching through London later to highlight the crisis in their industry.

They are demanding the Government ensures the responsible sale of Tata Steel's UK assets - which affects up to 2,000 jobs in South Yorkshire.

It comes ahead of a meeting between Tata Steel board members in Mumbai to draw up a shortlist of potential buyers. Business Secretary Sajid Javid and Welsh First Minsiter Carwyn Jones have also travelled to the Indian city for talks.

As negotiations continue, workers from steel plants across the UK will march through central London to keep up the pressure on the company and the government.

TUC General Secretary Frances O'Grady will criticise Chinese steel dumping at today's event.

Chinese steel dumping is wrecking the British steel industry. Thousands of jobs and whole communities are under threat, but the Government still supports giving China special market access.

The United States has sensibly levied serious tariffs to stop Chinese steel dumping. We should do the same. Market economy access for China is the last thing British steelworkers need. The Government must reverse course.

Mr Ward was attacked in his home in Maltby, near Rotherham, and his life savings stolen last year. His attackers broke in between 7pm on September 30th and 6:45am the following morning.

He was treated at Rotherham Hospital but died five months later due to the injuries sustained during the attack .

The images of Tommy following his ordeal left a lump in my throat when I think what he went through at the hands of these thugs.

This could have been your relative, you grandfather who went through this. That is why I'm asking that if anyone has any information on the individuals who did this, to make sure it doesn't happen again and contact Crimestoppers anonymously.
