Podcast: Whitstable fisherman takes boat to petrol station to protest rising price of red diesel

There’s more today following P&O’s decision last week to sack all 800 of their employees.

Labour are forcing an emergency vote in Parliament and want the government to outlaw the company’s decision. 

Hear today from the shadow work and pensions secretary and also the general secretary of the RMT union who have been campaigning on behalf of the staff made redundant.

Also in today’s podcast, a Whitstable fisherman has taken extreme action to raise awareness of the rising price of red diesel.

Chris Attenborough normally uses it to fill his boat – but says it’s now 70p a litre more expensive.

To prove his point, he’s taken the vessel on the back of a lorry to a petrol station.

A cafe has opened in Tunbridge Wells to help victims of domestic abuse.

Serenity Cafe is based in a secret location and will offer a safe space where survivors can meet and socialise with each-other.

We’ve been speaking to the manager and a domestic abuse survivor.

And, the Gillingham manager has been reacting to their point against Sheffield Wednesday at the weekend.

The result means they are now out of the league one relegation zone.
