SHADOW Education Secretary Stephen Twigg MP dropped in at an under-threat children’s centre to support parents fighting to keep it open.

Mr Twigg visited Finningley and Torne Valley Children’s Centre and also met locals to discuss concerns over the future of the centre which is under threat from Doncaster Council cuts.

He said: “Listening to the mums and dads make their case, I think it’s something that needs to be looked at again.”

Mums in the area have said there is nothing locally to replace services provided.
