Roller Derby 07 Sep 2007
One of the fastest growing sports in the UK

It’s fast, furious and, apparently, feminist. Roller Derby is a women-only, contact sport. Two teams skate around a looped track, with the ‘jammer’ trying to make her way through the opposing players to score points. Players are allowed to hip-shove and shoulder-barge to hamper the other team’s chance of success.

Reporter Natalie Barrass went to train with the 'London Rollergirls' team in East London.
