More than 100 protesters jumped over the barriers and onto the red carpet at the Suffragette premier in Lester Square last night.

They were demonstrating for a number of reasons, some seemed to be aimed at the film and others at the cuts that will direct women such as domestic violence support. Some of the women were there because they felt the film did not represent women of colour despite their involvement in the suffragette movement.

Helena Bonham Carter who was at the premier has said in an interview "I'm glad our film has done something. That's exactly what it's there for".
