Locals angry about the so-called bedroom tax have come together in Parson Cross, Sheffield to bolster the movement against it.

Benefit Justice was launched last month by the trade union Unite to challenge the government’s recent welfare reforms.

The campaign enlisted new members at a meeting in Colley Working Mens Club, Margetson Road, yesterday.
