Strikers take to the streets in Barnsley as members of the Public and Commercial Services Union hold a day of action over pay and pensions. The strike coincides with budget day with PCS members wanting a 5 percent pay increase. PCS member Neil License said:
"We are going down those failed policies of the 1930s which is about cut, cut, cut. Let's build some council houses. There are thousands of people in Barnsley waiting for council houses. Stuff like that gets the economy moving that will actually get Britain back to work and pay off the deficit."
