Disabled people protest at Welfare Reform Bill


People in wheelchairs chained themselves together in anger over welfare proposals, blocking traffic in one of London's busiest shopping areas.

Disability campaign groups and members of direct action organisation UK Uncut chanted, held banners and banged drums in the middle of Oxford Circus.

Campaigners say the changes in the Welfare Reform Bill will see half a million people lose their benefits.

Steven Sumpter, who was among the demonstrators, spoke to BBC News.
