G20 summit protests turn violent


Police have confirmed a man has died during anti-capitalist demonstrations in London.

The G20 summit prompted thousands of demonstrators to converge in the City, bringing parts of the financial district to a standstill.

The protests were mainly peaceful although more than 80 people were arrested during violent scuffles in the City, where a branch of the Royal Bank of Scotland was attacked.

Asha Tanna reports.
