A campaign fighting for fair transitional arrangements for women born in the 1950s who have seen a rise in their pension age has called on support from Diss residents today.

Pension Action in Norfolk (PAIN), which is supporting the national Women Against State Pension Inequality (WASPI) campaign, have a petition of more than 800 signatures and are calling on support from Norfolk MPs. Some women are facing a delay in receiving their pension of up to six years.

The group are due to meet with South Norfolk MP Richard Bacon in the coming weeks, and said they have had a “positive” meeting with South West Norfolk MP Liz Truss.
