Wheelchair users brought one of central London's busiest junctions to a standstill by chaining themselves together in the middle of Oxford Circus, blocking the turning into Regent Street.

The demonstration was organised by the direct action group UK Uncut and disability campaigners, to protest against the Government's proposed Welfare Reform Bill, which campaigners say will disadvantage thousands of people by cutting allowances and benefits.
