Barclays protests in London

Eight branches of Barclays in London are being targetted by protestors.

Supporters of UK Uncut are carrying out the protests over claims the bank has avoided paying tax.

They say they're not trying to force the banks to close but to occupy them in a day of protest in over thirty locations including Birmingham, Liverpool, London and Manchester.

Barclays insists it has not broken tax law by paying just one per cent in corporation tax on profits of £11.6 billion in 2009.

It says the amount was lower because it included losses for the previous year.
