PROTESTERS opposing the government’s austerity measures were out on the streets of Torbay on Saturday. The walk against austerity was organised by community group Torbay 3 Towns to protest against Government cuts to public services.
Before the event Nick Slater, one of the organisers, said: “The walk will be on similar lines to the mass demonstration in London over the weekend but a smaller version, but the same passion and feeling exists in Torquay.
“We are trying to raise awareness that people will be devastated by the cuts in Torbay. There are families struggling and we are finding more and more and getting into trouble.”
