Batman father in rooftop protest
Fathers 4 Justice protest at The Oracle in Reading
Two men dressed as Batman and Robin unfurled a banner on the roof
Fathers 4 Justice protesters dressed as superheroes have demonstrated on a rooftop in the centre of Reading.

Two men dressed as Batman and Robin hung a banner on top of the car park at the Oracle shopping centre.

The demonstration was led by Jason Hatch, 32, from Gloucestershire, who in September scaled a wall at Buckingham Palace dressed as Batman.

On Monday, he led a Fathers 4 Justice group to enter the London offices of children's charity the NSPCC.

Mr Hatch told BBC Radio Berkshire: "Families need fathers and we have been lobbying MPs for 30 years.

"I want to see my children now, not in 10 years time."

Fathers 4 Justice aims to highlight what it says are problems over access to members' children.
