Protesters disrupt Suffragette film premiere in Leicester Square

Activists campaigning for greater support for victims of domestic violence have released smoke flares and lain across the red carpet at the premiere of the film Suffragette.

The protesters chanted slogans including "domestic violence cuts kill" and "dead women can't vote".

The red carpet was temporarily blocked but the event later resumed with some women escorted away by security guards.
