Kazoo protest against licence plans

A kazoo orchestra has taken to the streets of Camden to protest about plans to licence buskers.

Comedians Mark Thomas and Bill Bailey along with musician Billy Bragg were among the people playing the wind instrument.

Under the proposals by Camden Council, anyone who wants to play a wind instrument, apart from the flute and the recorder, would need a special licence.

The council says it is responding to the concerns of residents who have complained.

BBC London's Wendy Hurrell spoke to comedian Bill Bailey; Jonny Walker, from the Association of Street Artists and Performers; and Camden councillor Abdul Hai.
