Police officers removing demonstrators from the pavement outside Parliament during a protest against the destruction of the world's forests. Earlier, police stopped a lorry loaded with sawdust and sand being driven to St Stephen's Gate, the main entrance to the Commons. The protester then drove the lorry on to the pavement in Parliament Square and tried to dump the sawdust there but was stopped by a police officer who smashed a cab window and turned off the engine. Later, a man and a woman were ejected from the public gallery of the Commons after shouting 'Wake up] The world is dying]' and throwing leaflets down to MPs during Question Time.
