MPS played snakes and ladders to highlight the plight of those in poverty.

Crowds drew in Shirebrook Market Place to witness the unusual sight of Dennis Skinner and Natascha Engel playing the life-size childhood game, with a twist.

Produced by the Derbyshire Unemployed Workers’ Centres (DUWCs), the game seeks to show how difficult it can be to achieve a secure full-time job to lift a person out of poverty.
