Over 60 people joined a rally in Sheffield on Monday to celebrate five years of campaigning by the South Yorkshire Freedom Riders.

The South Yorkshire Freedom Riders waged a civil disobedience campaign to win back free travel for older and disabled people on regional train services.

The rally brought together campaigners from across the region, along with Sheffield trades council secretary Martin Mayer and Natalie Bennett from the Green Party. The fight continues.
