The Occupy Democracy protest ran into difficulty today as police moved them off Parliament Square for trespassing. The police were allegedly told protestors were no longer allowed on the site as the grass needed time to recover after the recent heavy footfall. Fences were erected and protestors were forced to leave the ground.
Among those at the protest was Baroness Jenny Jones, of the Green party, who was briefly arrested before she was later 'de-arrested', allegedly after the police 'realised who she was', according to Occupy commentators on Twitter.
London Live went down to Parliament Square to speak with protestors and public bystanders, who described the police action as 'intimidating'.
The MET said they were simply applying the law 'fairly and proportionally.'
