A protest against family court “secrecy” is entering its fourth month.

Around a dozen demonstrators pitched tents at the front of the Royal Courts of Justice in London as a protest against “secrecy” late last year.

The demonstration has been organised by scaffolder Mark Chambers who has posted a list of recommendations for change on a tent.

He says more than a dozen people, from various parts of England, who have been embroiled in family court litigation have taken part – and some have staged hunger strikes.

Eight tents are currently sited on the pavements outside the main entrance to the complex, where the Family Division of the High Court is based, on the Strand.
