Queen in Ireland: Protests as monarch visits

A small number of people in Dublin have been involved in protests against the Queen's visit to Ireland.

Some held a sit-down protest near the Spire on O'Connell Street, while others were involved in scuffles with police as the Queen laid a wreath at the Garden of Remembrance.

The BBC's Nick Ravenscroft said around 200 people were involved in the protests.
