7 November 2017 12:15AM
More than half of MPs support a council's decision to introduce "buffer zones" outside abortion clinics to prevent protests, a poll suggests.
A survey of 101 parliamentarians found that 57% supported Ealing Council's decision to stop anti-abortion groups from protesting outside a clinic in the west London borough.
The authority is exploring options on how to prevent such demonstrations, including the use of Public Space Protection Orders.
