Protest against Battersea park playground refurbishment plans

Campaigners have been camping in a south London playground to protest against plans refurbish it.

Wandsworth Against Cuts does not want Battersea Park Adventure Playground to be demolished and protesters have been sleeping on the premises.

A revamped £200,000 playground is set to reopen in the spring - but without any staff as children will not need to be supervised, Wandsworth Council said.

The council said it had delayed the work until protesters left the area.

BBC London's Ayshea Buksh spoke to Occupy London's Dan Ashman, Wandsworth Against Cuts' Colin Crilly, and local resident Lyn Liddelow.
