Boris Johson Flash Mobbed By Save Earl's Court Campaigners

From Anabela Hardwick of Save Earl's Court campaign

Here is a round up of the Save Earl's Court campaign's eventful morning at City Hall on Tuesday this week. We gathered at 10AM for photographs and Darren Johnson (Green), Nicky Gavron (Labour) and Stephen Knight (Lib Dem) all spoke about why stopping the demolitions is so important.

Then suddenly someone noticed that Boris Johnson was speaking to the press on the small piece of lawn by the side of the Assembly.

So we all ran, placards and banners in hand and flash mobbed him, interrupting his press call.
