Hunger striker spends Christmas Day outside PM's home in Oxfordshire

Witney Gazette: Hunger striker spends Christmas Day outside PM's home Hunger striker spends Christmas Day outside PM's home

A CAMPAIGNER tonight remains on hunger strike outside the constituency home of David Cameron.

Tony Ashby, a prominent campaigner with protest group New Fathers 4 Justice, is on the sixth day of a hunger strike in a tent outside the home in Dean, near Chipping Norton.

According to the campaign group, a letter was this morning delivered to Mr Cameron's house.

The organisation said that Mr Ashby also rang the PM, who the group says was not at home, and left a short message on his answer phone.

A spokesman for the group said tonight: "He is still doing amazingly well with his hunger strike and in fine fettle entering his sixth day."

Herefordshire-based Mr Ashby, 48, set up camp in the village on Friday last week and is hoping his stunt will prompt action to change custody and adoption rules, which he claims are not fair on fathers.
