London's West End shops are calling for increased protection from protesters after shops were damaged and forced to close during Saturday's massive cuts march.

Activists occupied Fortnum and Mason for hours on Saturday afternoon
Many on Oxford Street and Piccadilly had to close their doors as a splinter group daubed paint on facades and smashed windows.
Meanwhile campaigners from UKUncut occupied luxury department store Fortnum and Mason, who they accused of dodging tax.
Initial estimates put the loss in takings for Saturday at more than £5m.
And now the body representing West End retailers and businesses is calling for action to make sure such disruption to retailers does not happen again.
In a letter to London mayor Boris Johnson, the New West End Company has demanded further steps to protect their 600 shops.
