JEREMY DELLER GIVES ORGREAVE WORK TO RAISE FUNDS FOR THE LEFT BOOK CLUB
Amber Rudd rules out an enquiry into the 1984 violent clash between police and striking miners, saying that 'policing had changed' - thereby implying that there was something very wrong with policing at the time.
Meanwhile Turner Prize winning artist Jeremy Deller has given a signed set of 19 photographs that he took during a re-enactment of the battle of Orgreave for his 2001 video work
'The Battle of Orgreave ; an Injury to one is an injury to all', shown at Tate Britain.
Jeremy Deller says, 'I am delighted to donate this work to the Left book Club, to raise funds for this important enterprise, and to keep Orgreave fresh in our minds.'
The work is an important collectors' item and can be bought for £500 as part of the Left Book Club's current crowdfunder.
