A delegation of Sheffield’s civic, faith and community leaders handed a 10,000-name petition to 10 Downing Street on Tuesday as part of a campaign for a ‘Fair Deal’ on Government grants. The delegation was led by council leader Julie Dore.

In the Commons, Sheffield Central MP Paul Blomfield challenged Treasury Ministers about policies that he said are hitting Sheffield much harder than the wealthier parts of the country.
