Freedom Riders protested at the South Yorkshire Passenger Transport offices in Sheffield on Monday of this week. 

They are demanding that South Yorkshire councils reinstate free train travel for older people.

They filled the reception area and demanded to speak to senior managers—but none were in, apparently.
