Thousands join London climate change march

Campaigners in central London have marched to demand that global leaders take urgent action to tackle climate change.
The event was the largest of about 2,500 demonstrations taking place around the world ahead of a critical UN climate summit in Paris.
Organisers said about 50,000 people were on the route from Hyde Park to Whitehall.
Cities including EdinburghBristol and Belfast hosted other UK marches.
The Paris conference, known as COP21, starts on Monday and will try to craft a long-term deal to limit carbon emissions.
The gathering of 147 heads of state and government is set to be far bigger than the 115 or so who came to Copenhagen in 2009, the last time the world came close to agreeing a long-term deal on climate change.
