Derby rallies for Bombardier

Thousands of people attended today's march and rally in support of the threatened Bombardier plant in Derby. Trade unionists and their families showed their support for the workers by marching through the centre of Derby to the applause of shoppers in the city.
The protesters heard from a range of speakers including Colin Walton, who heads up Bombardier, Tony Woodley and Bob Crow. Diana Holland spoke as did both local MP's, Chris Williamson and Margaret Beckett.
The fight to save Bombardier will continue over the summer to ensure that the proud tradition of building railway carriages continues - and that 170 years of railway manufacture does not come to a  premature end.
