Last anti-war protest tent can be cleared

Westminster Council is now free to remove the last anti-war protest tent near the Houses of Parliament.

A High Court judge today lifted an injunction which had been in place while peace campaigner Maria Gallastegui challenged the legality of new byelaws.

Last week, the High Court ruled that those byelaws - which give the local authority power to remove tents from around Parliament Square - were legal.
