F4J: Father tried to write 'help' on portrait of Queen

The campaign organisation Fathers4Justice (F4J) has said it believes one of its members tried to write 'help' on a portrait of the Queen in Westminster Abbey.

Campaign Director Jolly Stanesby said the member, who is allegedly a father from Doncaster, had "felt he had nothing to lose by appealing directly to the Queen for help".

We understand that a desperate father belonging to Fathers4Justice has attempted to write the word 'help' on a portrait of the Queen in Westminster Abbey at lunchtime.

The father...was trying to petition the Queen for help before Father's Day on Sunday.

Up to 4 million children will be without a father this Father's Day.

[He] has lost all contact with his children and felt he had nothing to lose by appealing directly to the Queen for help by spraying his plea onto her portrait."
