NHS workers have staged demonstrations across the region over their exclusion from the government's public sector pay deal.

Unions are calling for a pay rise due in April to be brought forward in recognition of their work during the pandemic.

Health workers protested in towns and cities across the region including Sheffield, Chesterfield and Leeds.

The government says they negotiated a separate three year pay rise in 2018.
