Tamil protest at Royal lunch for Commonwealth leaders

Hundreds of Tamil and human rights campaigners gathered outside Marlborough House in central London in opposition to Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa's presence at a lunch for Commonwealth heads of state attended by the Queen.

Mr Rajapakse was jeered as he arrived through the main gate, his car not carrying a flag because of security concerns.

Peter Biles reports.
