  Thousands join anti-Bush march
Updated 20 November 2003, 16.38
Protest in London
Thousands of people have marched through London in protest at US President Bush's visit and the war in Iraq.

Children joined in the protests, many carrying posters, banners and drums.

They were marching past Downing Street, where the prime minister lives, and past Parliament buildings, before ending in Trafalgar Square.

Traffic disruption is expected because some roads are closed during the march, and extra police are on duty.

Mr Bush and Tony Blair were carrying on with their meetings while the march continued.

There are fears about security after it was discovered that a journalist from the Mirror newspaper got a job as a servant in Buckingham Palace, where Mr Bush is staying.

Police were also concerned about safety after bombs in Turkey on Thursday morning at the British Consulate and a bank, which killed many people.
