|'Street Party' Staged Outside Clegg's House|
UK Uncut campaigners in the hundreds in Parkfields
Hundreds of demonstrators invaded the usually quiet street in West Putney where deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg and his family live. Disabled activists chained their wheelchairs at both ends of the street in Putney where he lives.
UK Uncut said it targeted Mr Clegg as he was "one of the architects of austerity". Police have said there were no arrests at the protest which ended peacefully.
UK Uncut, which has previously targeted high profile people it believes are avoiding paying tax, said it was now targeting politicians.
Jean Sandler, 42, a UK Uncut supporter, told the BBC:
Mark Serwotka, general secretary of the Public and Commercial Services union, backed the protesters' saying:
But Louise Mensch, the Conservative MP for Corby and East Northamptonshire, took to Twitter to describe the demonstration as "intolerable bullying".
She tweeted: "I would normally never do this. I am Tory to the marrow of my bones. But how about £5 to the LibDems today? If you believe targeting home & family of a politician you disagree with is intolerable bullying - £5 for Nick Clegg."
