Protestors in Bristol have blocked two bridges as part of a national action in advance of the Autumn Statement.

They formed human blockades across Bristol bridge and Redcliffe bridge in a peaceful protest at 12.30 on Sunday (20/11).

Domestic violence campaign group 'Sisters Uncut' have staged the protest with groups in London, Newcastle, Glasgow attempting to block bridges in those cities.

Sisters Uncut say Theresa May is"blocking migrant domestic violence survivors' bridges to safety by refusing them access to support services".

They say they're, "demanding a strategic plan for all domestic violence survivors, regardless of immigration status, that supports black and brown, disabled and LGBT+ survivors."

The Bristol group have criticized the council for taking inadequate measures to house domestic violence survivors.
