And 85 years on, we are spotlighting once again the marchers who did so much to raise the concerns of a community’s protest against poverty and unemployment.

We have 10 photos to share of the marchers en route to London with a look at some of the characters who played a part, including the dog they adopted along the way.

Join us as we pay tribute to the marchers of Jarrow.
