Protesters took to the streets of Doncaster to protest over Government spending cuts.

Campaigners waved flags and banners on the roundabout junction between Trafford Way and Cleveland Street, while campaigners also unveiled a banner at the top of the nearby Southern Bus Station multi-storey car park, which was draped over the side from the top floor.

Campaigners drew attention to cuts in the family tax credits and said one in six children was living in poverty.

Union officials spoke over a loud hailer, and some motorists sounded their horns in response.

The budget yesterday also announced a rise in the minimum wage.
