Coronavirus: Economic fightback plan launches for South Yorkshire

A Covid-19 response group has been launched to lead an economic fightback in South Yorkshire.

It is joining together the regions private sector, businesses, trade and other organisations.

Sheffield city region mayor Dan Jarvis told us planning ahead is vital. He said: "We are likely to be dealing with the fallout and consequences of the coronavirus for months and years to come. The sooner we start thinking about that, and the sooner we start to draw together an economic response plan, the better for all of our businesses and communities across South Yorkshire."
