Update from the streets of London

Wednesday, April 01, 2009

We've been checking in all morning with the gathering protestors in London the day before the G-20 summit. London is braced for a day of demonstrations ahead of tomorrow's summit of G-20 leaders. This morning anti-capitalist and climate change protestors converged on the financial heart of the city, while this afternoon an anti-war demonstration is expected outside the American Embassy. The organizers insist their protests will be peaceful, but windows at a Royal Bank of Scotland building and other shops have been smashed. We return once again to BBC reporter Jack Izzard who is on the scene.

If you want to keep on top of the action, follow the twitter feed of the G-20 and while you're there, follow us @thetakeaway.

Here's the latest from YouTube:
