RUNNERS protesting against cuts to Warrington’s libraries wore campaign t-shirts and carried banners to raise awareness of the issue as they raced in the English Half Marathon on Sunday.

Campaigners from the Save Warrington’s Libraries group invited residents of all ages to pick up a free blue t-shirt pledging their support.

People also carried a large banner to promote the protest and asked spectators to sign a petition calling on LiveWire to scrap plans to replace some libraries with lending lockers.
