Protests as Remploy closes its doors

Workers and union members held a protest today as the last Remploy factory in our region closed its doors for the final time.

They laid wreath at Remploy's Sheffield site in protest at the loss of 75 jobs. Its factories in Leeds, Huddersfield, Pontefract and Worksop - which supported disabled workers - have also recently closed down. David Hirst reports.
