UK fathers' rights group stages protest

A fathers' rights group which has already pelted Prime Minister Tony Blair and scaled Buckingham Palace, staged a "superhero" protest near Blair's Downing Street home on Monday.

    The 'superheroes' scaled the Foreign Office in London

    Dressed as Batman, Robin and Captain America, the three men used a ladder to climb up the Foreign Office building onto a narrow ledge about 12 metres up on the corner of Downing Street.

    But the dynamic trio did not breach security.

    However, they unfurled a banner saying: "Access denied. Don't let Labour stop you being a Superdad" as a crowd gathered below and police tried to talk them down.

    The Fathers 4 Justice group is campaigning for better treatment by the courts for divorced fathers - specifically in visitation rights to their children.
