Yorks strikers produce bootleg newspapers

Journalists taking industrial action make sure "real news" continues.

Journalists out on indefinite strike in South Yorkshire have produced bootleg versions of their newspapers - the latest move in a bitter dispute with Johnston Press management.

NUJ members said they are producing versions of the Doncaster Free Press, South Yorkshire Times and the Selby Times so that readers do not "miss out on the real news while they are taking industrial action".

Yesterday, they accused Johnston Press of using students on work experience to disrupt their industrial action. The company declined to comment on the allegations.
