A protest on the balcony of a mansion believed to belong to Vladimir Putin ally Oleg Deripaska is continuing, despite the arrival of riot police.

The protesters said they were reclaiming 5 Belgrave Square, in central London, for Ukrainian refugees.

Billionaire energy tycoon Mr Deripaska is one of the oligarchs sanctioned by the UK government following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Riot police entered the property earlier but found nobody inside.
