Thousands attend climate change protest in London

More than 5,000 protesters have gathered outside Parliament in London calling on politicians to take tougher action on climate change.

Crowds of environmental activists cheered as a host of speakers including Vivienne Westwood, who appeared via video link, and Green Party MP Caroline Lucas attacked the Government and accused it of not taking action.
