Local MPs made the case for EU membership, as the Labour Party launched its campaign to remain part of Europe in Rotherham town centre.

John was joined by Rother Valley MP Kevin Barron and Yorkshire and the Humber MEP Linda McAvan.

Speaking at the event, John said: “Everything from the advanced manufacturing park, to the Manvers industrial park, to the transport interchange just down the road from where we are here in Rotherham town centre – those happened because of a big contribution from European funds.”
