The work of hundreds of women who toiled in the steel factories of South Yorkshire, England, during World War II is to be formally recognised by the Government.

The workers, who became known as the Women of Steel, produced metal which was essential for the war effort.

Ruby Gascoigne, 87, Dorothy Slingsby, 88, and Kathleen Roberts and Kit Sollitt, both 90, will travel to London to be thanked by the veterans minister.

They are to go from Sheffield on a train named the Women of Steel Express.
