Hundreds of protesters marched on Downing Street today to show their support for the Human Rights Act.

It comes during a week in which David Cameron insisted that the public should be "in no doubt" of his commitment to rip up the act.

The Government plans to scrap the Human Rights Act, which enshrines the convention in law, and replace it with a British bill of rights.

It has led to speculation that the Government could pull out of the European Convention on Human Rights.

The proposal has been delayed and was not included in this week's Queen's Speech, with many observers suggesting the Government may not be able to pass it through Parliament as too many peers and Tory MPs are opposed to it.

The protest, dubbed The Great British Right Off!- Protest for the Human Rights Act included campaigners from the anti-austerity group UK Uncut.

A unicyclist who was pulled from under a bus by 100 bystanders is awake after undergoing multiple surgeries.

The 55-year-old man was in collision with the number 212 bus on Thursday evening on Hoe Street in Walthamstow.

His daughter said he has been awake and speaking but will have to undergo yet another surgery later today.

He has a broken leg.

She said her father has been riding a unicycle for years and it is only because he is such a strong character that he has dealt with the incident so well.

Witnesses described people running from nearby restaurants to try and lift the bus from on top of the injured man. He is being treated at a hospital in East London.
