Thousands of people are expected to converge on the city today for a protest calling for climate change action. With the general election getting closer, demonstrators will be calling for climate change to be put at the top of the political agenda.

The march will bring together groups who campaign on both social and environmental issues. It builds on the People's Climate March in September last year, which was attended by tens of thousands of people. The march begins at Lincoln's Inn Fields and will head towards Parliament where there will be a rally with keynote speakers.
