At least two dads from the group New Fathers 4 Justice have scaled the Labour leader’s home and perched on the roof.

The pair unfurled banners from their lofty position as they stage a demonstration on fathers’ rights.

The men have been named as Bobby Smith, 34, and Martin Mathews, 49.

They are believed to be the same duo who held a similar rooftop protest atop MP Angela Eagle’s office last month.

Just days after she launched her ill-fated bid to be the next Labour leader, Mr Smith also climbed her office building and set up a tent on the roof.

He was also protesting fathers’ rights.

The father-of-two claims he has not seen his two daughters for five years.

Mr Matthews, from Surrey, is said to be protesting against new Prime Minister Theresa May.

One of the banners they are holding: “Stop the war on dads, Theresa May take it in your face”.

Another banner is believed to reference a child one of the men is in a custody battle over.
