Police have been called to Jeremy Corbyn’s north London home after two men staged a protest on his roof.
Bobby Smith, 34, and Martin Mathews, 49, targeted the Labour leader’s house to demonstrate for the New Fathers 4 Justice campaign group.
Mr Smith, who said he has not seen his two daughters for five years, declared he was protesting against Mr Corbyn’s views on shared parenting.
Mr Smith, said: “I tried to talk to Jeremy in March and he was very rude to me. I wanted to talk to him about his role in blocking shared parenting of 50/50 contact back in 2011.
“He was part of a panel that blocked the Children and Families Act.”
The police have closed the road in Islington after Mr Smith used a ladder to climb on to the roof at 10am this morning.
Mr Smith added: “We want to raise awareness towards the plight of fathers and I want Jeremy Corbyn to think about what his position is on shared parenting.”

The former prime minister David Cameron claimed his Oxfordshire home was “falling apart” last year because of damage caused by protesters climbing on its roof.
“The tiles are falling off, the window frames are rotten but I am happy there, we all are. I am a country boy at heart,” he said.
