A suspended Tax protest


A man suspended himself upside down in Trafalgar Square to protest against the rising cost of living today.

Herbert Crossman, 60, from Harrow, hung upside down from a crane for two hours in central London, attached by the ankles with a bungee rope.

He was protesting against what he described as the "take, take, take attitude" of the British Government.

He said he demonstrated how the British public is "haemorrhaging money" by lining up three tubs beneath him to catch money as it fell from his pockets - one tub for the Government, one for utility bills and one in red for his income.
