FATHERS 4 JUSTICE ARRESTED BY SWAT TEAM.
Activists Jolly Stanesby and Mike Downes, along with a support crew of four, were held as the memorial was evacuated by US authorities.
Stanesby and Downes scaled the Lincoln Memorial dressed as tourists before revealing their
Captain America and Batman costumes, and unfurling a white banner yesterday.
It read: "For the Fathers of the Nation: Fathers 4 Justice has arrived."
A police spokesman said the men were being held in custody in Washington at the moment and could be either deported back to Britain or placed on trial in the United States.
