Protestors scale David Cameron's office

Fathers' rights campaigners have spent nearly seven hours on the roof of David Cameron's constituency office in Oxfordshire.

The three 'New Fathers for Justice' members were dressed as Superman, the Hulk and a court jester.

They managed to scale the building in Witney, which is home to the West Oxfordshire Conservative Association, and is also David Cameron's constituency office, at about 7am this morning.

Heart's been told the campaigners won't be returning tomorrow, but haven't ruled out going back up at some point in the future.

The Prime Minister wasn't in Witney during the protests.

New Fathers 4 Justice protest goes all the way to the top

NEW Fathers 4 Justice activists scaled the roof of David Cameron’s constituency office in Witney yesterday.

Shortly after 6.40am, three protesters climbed the building in High Street.

The group says its members will keep returning to the town until the Prime Minister meets their demands for equal rights for both parents.

They shouted through megaphones and put up a banner on the roof.

Activists included Roger Crawford, dressed as a court jester, Archit Ssan, as the Incredible Hulk, and Jeremy Pogue as Superman.

Mr Crawford, 61, of Bedfordshire, said: “We will do this until David Cameron deigns to speak to us.”
