Campaign over jailed pickets

MPs are to press for the release of papers relating to an industrial dispute more than 40 years ago which led to pickets being jailed.

Campaigners are trying to quash convictions against the so-called Shrewsbury 24, including actor Ricky Tomlinson, arrested five months after a 1972 building workers' strike.
