There has been controversy at the Paralympics.

While the Games in London are drawing record crowds, a short distance away, disability activists have staged a series of protests against one of the Games' main sponsors.

Atos, a company with a $600m contract to assess whether an individual is fit for work, was the target of a demonstration outside the department of work and pensions in London.

Protesters said that the company treats those claiming disability benefits poorly and disregards their needs.

Atos stands by its practises.
