Bug Description

Currently when viewing a group, the in-page tabs are also shown as a bulleted list in the sidebar (with the group name as a heading). This is confusing for screen reader users since it needlessly duplicates navigation in a different place.

If this list serves no particular purpose it should just be removed, otherwise perhaps it could be reorganised to be less similar to the navigation. (Should be a wishlist item though)

It does look like it's really just duplicated information. So I'd be for removing this block.
