Commemorative walk for jobs from north-east to London will go ahead after council back-down

Five hundred protesters plan to demonstrate in Jarrow with 50 youths then setting off on the trek to London via Leeds, Nottingham, Coventry and Northampton. They are due to arrive in Trafalgar Square on 5 November. The walkers plan to sleep in church halls and live off food rations and good will, organisers say.
