Disabled workers who have lost their jobs following the closure of Remploy factories are to stage a protest outside the Conservative Party Conference later.

Twenty-four sites were closed in August as part of government cut backs.

The Leicester and Stoke-on-Trent factories are among three more due to shut later this year and and the future of a further 18 are uncertain.

Police: 'The cuts will hit us hard'

The West Midlands Police secretary, Chris Jones, says the proposed 20% cuts to the police force will hit them hard.

Mr. Jones was speaking outside the Conservative Party conference in Birmingham, where a Boris look-a-like rode outside with a 'PC Pleb' t-shirt on in protest at alleged comments against a police officer made by Sutton Coldfield MP Andrew Mitchell.
