PROTESTORS gathered outside Leeds central library last week to fight changes to the immigration bill.

Emily Jennings, from Leeds No Borders, said: “The new measures introduced in housing, health and legal support are inappropriate in principle, lacking in proper evidence, costly and unworkable.

“This hostile legislation ignores the positive social, cultural and economic contributions that migrants have already made, and continue to make, to the UK.”

Campaigners urge new owners of cherished Leeds mill to reach out - and ‘help us tell and re-tell the Temple Works story’
