Marking Workers' Memorial Day

This May Day I want to thank the key workers, NHS frontline staff and care workers who are making our community proud every day of this crisis.

This week I virtually attended Barnsley's International Workers' Memorial Day event, held to honour those who have died, been injured or suffered illness at work.

Every year, more people die in workplaces than war.

We must remember the dead and fight for the living now more than ever.
