Protesters occupy Cambridge office of healthcare firm

Protesters have occupied the Cambridge offices of a healthcare company as part of a demonstration against cuts to benefits for disabled people.

Activists entered Atos Healthcare in Hills Road on Wednesday in protest at what they claim is the company's role in reassessing incapacity benefit.

Protesters claimed more than 40 people had occupied the building during the evening and intended to stay all night.

Cambridgeshire Police said they were monitoring the situation.

The action came on the day that more than 5,000 people took part in the Hardest Hit March in London to protest at cuts to benefits and services for disabled people.
