Peace campaigner Brian Haw dies

Peace campaigner Brian Haw has died after “a long hard fight” against lung cancer, his family has announced. Mr Haw, 62, set up a camp in London’s Parliament Square in 2001 in protest against UK and US foreign policy. In March 2011, a High Court ruling obtained by London’s mayor forced him to move his camp on to the pavement.
