MORE than 200 Barnsley trade unionists and bedroom tax activists have booked places on coaches to go and protest in Manchester on Sunday.

September 29 will see protesters demonstrating outside the Conservative Party conference, with coaches leaving Eldon Street at 10am.

The chairman of Barnsley Trades Council, Malcolm Clements, said: "There's growing anger at the impact Tory policies are having on ordinary people's lives.

"We cannot wait until the next election before we fight back - we have to fight back now."
