LONDON – A lone protester from a group campaigning for the rights of divorced fathers climbed onto the roof of Britain’s Houses of Parliament on Tuesday and unfurled a flag while police officers watched.

The protest group, Fathers 4 Justice, has staged several stunts in the past including scaling the walls of Queen Elizabeth’s London residence and pelting Prime Minister Tony Blair with coloured flour while he was addressing parliament.

“They left the door open here (parliament). Security is very tight in Brighton and there would have been a risk of someone getting hurt. We wouldn’t want one of our people to get injured or to put the police in that position,” he said by telephone.
