Workers at Remploy are due to stage a second day of strike action in an attempt to save the jobs of more than 2,500 disabled people around the country.
Earlier this year the Government announced plans to close or sell off 54 factories across the UK, including sites at Ashington in Northumberland, Newcastle, and Spennymoor in County Durham.
Today, Remploy workers who are members of the Unite and GMB unions are holding a second 24-hour strike, after similar action was taken on July 19.
