Labour MP: Jubilee stewards left by roadside at 3am in London

Shadow Foreign Minister Kerry McCarthy has tweeted that a group of long-term unemployed jobseekers were forced to bring their own tents to the capital and left to "sleep" under London Bridge.


Just been on phone to one of the jubilee stewards. They had to bring their own tents and sleeping bags, but too cold and wet to sleep.


Arrived in London 3am, left by roadside, eventually taken to London Bridge to 'sleep' but had to start work 5am/5.30am.


Were told by Close Protection they'd get £450 for their work, then Tomorrow's People said it was 'work experience', unpaid.


Diamond Jubilee Celebrations

The capital's Jubilee celebrations continue with a Royal picnic at Buckingham Palace followed by the Diamond Jubilee Concert. Yesterday hundreds of thousands of people lined the Thames to watch the Jubilee Flotilla.
