Anti-cuts protesters block Lord Freud's road

Up to 300 anti-cuts protesters - some posing as removal men - have blocked a road outside the north London home of welfare minister Lord Freud.

Organiser, UK Uncut, said Lord Freud had "spearheaded" policies including cuts in housing benefits for those with spare bedrooms.

The BBC's Tom Symonds visited the scene in Highgate, where he said protesters had "taken over the road".

Campaigners also protested outside Work and Pensions Secretary Iain Duncan Smith's house in Swanbourne, Buckinghamshire.
