The so-called Freedom Riders have suffered a set back after their call for a return to free rail travel was turned down by transport bosses.
The pensioners have been staging a series of protests over the plans, by boarding trains, but refusing refusing to pay the fares. Today (Monday May 19, 2014) the region's Transport Committee agreed that people with disabilities should, travel free and that the elderly will pay half-rail fares.
But after a stormy meeting in Barnsley, the protestors say they won't give up the fight. David Hirst reports
