Royal baby due: Fathers4Justice planning protest to clash with birth

As the world continues to wait for news of the Royal birth, one organisation is said to be planning to poop the party when it eventually happens.

According to the Mirror, the campaign group Fathers4Justice is planning a protest at Prince Charles's home to coincide with the birth of baby Cambridge. Fathers4Justice campaigns to give fathers equal rights to see their children after separation and divorce.

The group – known for its Batman and Robin stunts - wants to fly a para-glider on to Charles' Highgrove estate, landing on or close to the main building, and unfurl a banner.

A source told the newspaper: "There is a planned launch site for a paramotor/paraglider half mile east of Highgrove.

"As it's a royal residence it is a no fly zone meaning all kit is gone the second when they land.

"They intend to drag a banner which has written on it 'Help - Give dads equal rights, Fathers4Justice' across the estate trying to land near or on the building."

A Gloucestershire Police spokeswoman said: "We are aware of these intentions for an airborne protest.

"The group have been advised as to air space restrictions and no fly zones.

"We have offered to work with organisers to facilitate a peaceful legal protest on the ground and would encourage them to engage with us."
