1911 Llanelli strike death's centenary memorial plan


Residents of Llanelli are planning to commemorate the death of two railway workers in the town almost 100 years ago.

Hundreds of railway men downed tools in the summer of 1911, as part of a national strike across Britain. The strike led to rioting and when soldiers were sent in to break-up the riot and shot dead two innocent men.

Nicola Smith went to meet Tim Evans who's campaigning for a memorial for John John and Leonard Worsell to mark the centenary of their deaths.
