Business leaders, Rotary Club members and railway bosses gathered to unveil a plaque as part of events to mark the centenary of stainless steel in Sheffield.

The plaque is dedicated to Harry Brearley, inventor of the revolutionary material, and has been installed above the Sheffield railway station concourse.

Descendents of Mr Brearley were also in attendance at the unveiling ceremony, which was carried out by Master Cutler Neil MacDonald.

Jason Cocker, station manager, said: “The railway has played an important role within Sheffield for almost 150 years and it’s therefore fitting we should be recognising such an important milestone at the station.”
