Angry chants rang through the streets of Levenshulme, south Manchester, on Sunday as a march against cuts wound its way to the threatened library and Arcadia sports facility.

The demonstration was enlivened by many young people on roller skates.

Children’s author Alan Gibbons told the marchers, “It is not the job of a Labour council to implement Tory cuts, but to defend the interests of the people who elected them.”
