Clegg: 'We don't want to retreat behind battlements'

Nick Clegg has said the anti-cuts protest outside his London home had scared some neighbours' young children.

Mr Clegg said he respected the right to protest, and noted it was peaceful, but said it showed how difficult trying to live "a normal life" could be.

He said the protest meant they were now in "new territory" but he hoped his family would not have to "retreat" to official government accommodation.
