Blacklisted workers protested at Liverpool FC’s match against Manchester United last Sunday against the use of Carillion to build the new stand at its Anfield stadium.

Carillion is a defendant in the blacklisting High Court group litigation. It has admitted its active involvement in blacklisting scandals over decades.

Roy Bentham organised the protest. He is a carpenter in the Blacklist Support Group and part of the unofficial Liverpool fans’ union Spirit of Shankly.

He said, “Carillion is only sorry it got caught.”
