Russell Brand left London anti-capitalist protest for theatre

Russell Brand has said he can see why "there is so much frustration" among protesters who took part in an anti-austerity march in London.

Thousands of activists marched through London on Bonfire Night to protest against the political establishment.

Brand told Nick Grimshaw on Radio 1's Breakfast show he was worried the march might make him late for a West End show, which he later attended.
